#Noplasticfantastic Report 2019

In 2019 Pearson introduced a new environmental club with the focus on our oceans.  A group of knowledgeable and enthusiastic learners quickly created awareness about the impact that the irresponsible use of plastics has on the oceans.  A small group started doing beach clean ups, selling glass straws and reusable cups.  The group steadily grew and the club joined The Sustainable Seas Trust as well as WESSA for bigger beach clean ups and other events, that turned out to be a lot of fun as well.

The president, Sophia Finestone, was selected as the first youth ambassador for the African Waste Network.  Sophia attended the 10-day Global Youth Leadership Conference in Washington DC in June 2019 where she had a platform to share her views regarding the responsible use of plastic with other young leaders from 145 countries as well as international agencies including the UN.  Pearson is extremely proud of her.

2020 is sure to be a remarkable year with a growing group of learners who are excited about saving the planet’s oceans.  #Noplasticfantastic is proud to be of service.
