Future Stewards

Inspired by the next generation: National Anti-litter Poster & Video Competition

We love being inspired by the next generation of future stewards, and that’s exactly what happened when the submissions for our ‘National Anti-litter poster & video competition’ started rolling in. 

The poster and video competition was a way to support teachers to engage their students with one of the world’s most solve-able challenges – litter entering our waterways. 

Students were encouraged to explore a plastic item used at home, school, or in the wider community and design either a poster or video showing how they would re-purpose or replace that object with a more ocean-friendly option. Or, how they would inspire others to change their use of the plastic object. 

The competition was a part of the wider CVA #SeaToSource campaign, aiming to inspire everyone across Australia to raise awareness and take action to stop litter pollution – particularly plastic. 

After some absolutely swell entries, one which stood out was a poster created by Jeremy and Michael, Year 4 students from Oakhill Drive Public School in Castle Hill, NSW. A big thank you to both the winners and their teacher Mrs Tania Weigand for inspiring us and their local community with this important message to use reusable & durable lunch boxes rather than single use materials (we love the healthy lunch and reusable drink bottle included too!) 🐠
