What are the Challenges and the Underlying Problem?

  • Sewage, toxic chemicals, oil spills, littering and ocean mining
  • People’s attitudes towards ocean pollution
  • Businesses producing harmful products

My Underlying Problem

  • How might we increase awareness around plastic pollution so that impacts on the ocean are lessened in New Zealand in 2017 and beyond?

Alternative Solution Ideas

  1. Make and sign petitions against plastic usage in New Zealand
  2. Design an innovative product(s) which provides an alternative to commonplace plastic products (plastic bags, bottles, straws)
  3. Build on website and social media channels to build a campaign to avoid plastic pollution (including a short video)
  4. Develop a plastic monitoring crowd sourced app
