“Two Hands clean up”

THP Web Banner 510px wide_ss_BBSH_lowA half day excursion, cleaning up the local beach, park or waterway OR a presentation& quick schoolyard clean up

After the clean up, students scientifically audit what they have collected, breaking it down into types of objects, looking at quantity and percentages of what was collected. This data can then be contributed to  the  National Marine Debris data bank.

One of the outcomes we are after is for students to consider the role design plays in whether or not a product or packaging ends up as pollution.  Once the top  plastic pollution items are identified we ask the students to form focus groups where they discuss the reasons why those common items end up as pollution.
