The vision of Remix Plastic is to foster sustainable behaviour and a circular economy. This vision gives us the focus to carry out our mission of providing education that encourages and empowers individuals to make sustainable changes.
Our Targeted Actions:
- Reduce single use plastic consumption through hands-on education
- Engage the community in local circular economy practices
- Provide a positive sustainable vision for the future so that individuals can see the opportunities to create a better world.
This vision and mission statement is a broad overarching approach to sustainability education that allows us to seize opportunities as they arise. We have found ways to communicate and engage people in a range of mediums; from blogs, articles and presentations to radio shows and podcasts. We want to reach as many people via as many avenues as possible. Our aim to empower people to make changes drives us to always use positive and inviting messaging to ensure we don’t cause people to disengage with environmental conversations.
