We run workshops, using art-based educational tools to teach the dangers of single-use plastics, to reduce their use and how to better dispose of them.
MUDFISH NO PLASTIC WORKSHOPS
The MUDFISH NO PLASTIC Project involves multiple visits to a school or village to provide 4 workshops. Each workshop involves a maximum of 30 participants in order to be able to provide more effective individualized instruction.
Each workshop has its own specific goals to initially present an understanding of the nature of the problem followed by workshops that further instruct and reinforce the importance of not using single-use plastic and of disposing of waste in a responsible way.
After the four workshops have been run, MUDFISH NO PLASTIC asks the local Facilitator on a regular basis about the progress being made in the school or villages in reducing the use of single-use plastics and of proper recycling.
