The MANA HONU Plastic Pollution Awareness Project is in full swing in Moorea!
The PK (Kilometer Point) Sponsorship Program with regular waste collection in the sponsored area continues with the signature of the MANA HONU sponsorship charter for a dozen zones. 32 km out of the 60 km of the island have already been sponsored. Our efforts continue with the objective of sponsoring the entire belt road!
The Awareness Program for Businesses with the provision of environmentally friendly alternatives to the use of plastic is also well received. More than a dozen businesses have committed on key aspects to the Project by signing the MANA HONU commitment chart: no distribution of plastic bags and proposals of environmentally friendly materials, replacement of plastic trays with cardboard trays for take-away food, etc. As Hélène Duran, Communications Manager and Project Manager points out, the MANA HONU Project responds to an environmental emergency. Too many plastics end up in our lagoon and we can observe this pollution on a daily basis. Local businesses are well aware of this problem and thus receive this Project positively. The proposal of ecological alternatives on concrete points of their use enables them to cross the critical stage of behavior change”.
The educational materials developed for this project (posters, cartoons, 7 family games, origami, poster campaigns, etc.) will also help to get the message out to the public, in schools and in public places.
Together, let’s act for the protection of the environment!
