Students were recently treated to a visit from Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, founder of the Plastic Free Foundation and a WA Local Hero 2021 award winner, which is part of the Australia of the Year Awards.
Rebecca founded the Plastic Free July campaign in 2011 and has evolved the campaign into a global movement. In 2019 the campaign empowered 250 million people across 177 countries, to join a community and commit to choosing to refuse the single-use plastic in their lives.
It was such a pleasure to host Rebecca and hear her speak so passionately about such a great cause.
This visit was made possible by Chevron Australia as a part of their Environment Month celebrations for June.
