In honor of the ocean, for this year's Around The Island Race, we are excited to be hosting the ERG Challenge Relay Race around the Island (45km) on 9th November and also a fundraising drive for Ocean Recovery Alliance - to promote the concept of water appreciation for all of us who use it for training, recreation and competition. We hope your team can help to raise funds to continue in support of our global work, including the expanded use, even by you, your teams and communities, of our Global Alert app, which allows people to report trash hotspots anywhere in the world's waterways and coastlines. We invite ATIR 2019 participants and members of the public to join us to raise funds for the waters we all love.
You can easily create a fundraising page on this online fundraising platform, and share your page link with your friends and invite them to donate. Click on "Start Fundraising" button above to set up your fundraising page today.
Ocean Recovery Alliance
Some of Ocean Recovery Alliance's projects include:
1) Global Alert platform/app allows you to report on trash hotspots anywhere in the world's waterways and coastlines.
2) Plastic Disclosure Project - similar to that of carbon or water reporting, but for plastic and waste. We also have a version for event organizers, called PDP Sport, so that waste reduction and recycling can be optimized prior to the events.
3) The Water Falling Festival and Water Rising Festivals in some of the villages along the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia for plastic pollution prevention, better waste management, and recycling.
4) The Plasticity Forums, business conferences which focus on solutions and innovations for plastic in its second life, for a world without the waste footprint.
5) The "Grate Art" program which uses ceramic plaques on the streets to remind people not to dump into storm drains, as they drain to the sea.
6) We have also written a play for children around the world (now in seven languages) to remember to recycle and use better waste management. "Uncle Roo - the Recycling Rooster" reminds children to recycle using "Eco-Repetition" via the daily sound of the rooster.
