Plastic

 

Plastic is one of the greatest problems affecting the islands, not just because it takes up a lot of space in landfill but because both bird and sea life mistake plastic for food and die or choke from trying to digest pieces of plastic.

 

In partnership with the FrenchDevelopment Agency ( French high Commission in Tahiti) and the Société Environment Polynésien,PAA produced an educational film called “How to Process Plastic on Your Island.” Filmed in Australia and Tahiti, and funded by the Pacific Fund the film was tragetted to waste management departments to demonstrate how to categorise, sort and process plastic in an island setting.  Other partners include, Sims Plastic, Reef Shipping, Australia’s Wastech, The Samoan Waste Management Department, Air Tahiti Nui, the Plastic and Chemical Industry of Australia, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Region Environment Program which distributed the film to 22 waste management  departments throughout the Pacific.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tuvalu Plastic Shopping Bag Free Program

PAA also assisted Tuvalu in its quest to minimise the useage of plastic shopping bags on Island. In partnerhisp with the Governmen of Tuivalu as approved by both Prime Minsitrs Saufatu Sopoanga and Maaitia Toafam and with the funding from IH in Germany we provided 6,800 bags to the main Island of Funafuti. Reef Shipping provided free shipping and Freehills offered draft environmental legislation to underpin sustainability. The program also provided shops with a stock of brown paper bags as well as paper wrapping for meat, fish and frozen products. The public information campaign included radio programs, bilingual brochures, a schools program and a traveling theatre

production.
