Upcycled Single-Use Plastic Art Piece Team-building

Your team will create amazing art piece creations using single-use plastics that are not recyclable and might otherwise end up in the ocean waters. Plastic has been found in more than 60% of all seabirds and in 100% of sea turtle species. When ingested, it can cause life-threatening problems. Most of the plastic used is from previous PMMC coastal beach cleanups. Your creations will be donated to under-served children at a local non-profit organization to inspire and to provide joy in their lives. (Time Commitment: 2 hours)

  • No. of Volunteers: 5 – 20 volunteers
