ISSP [2021] : The Reduction Of Plastic Waste In The Ocean

Thailand is the sixth biggest contributor of ocean pollution in the world. Plastic pollution threatens marine ecosystems, coastal tourism, and human health. After collecting data in Krabi schools, we found that there is a correlation between the school’s focus on raising plastic pollution awareness and students’ waste management practices. Based on our findings, we developed a virtual booklet that can be distributed to schools in Krabi. The goal of this booklet is to provide schools with resources that will enable them to better educate their students on the detrimental effects of plastic pollution and proper plastic waste management.
