WiseTribe Gatherings

A walk on any beach, anywhere, and the problem is obvious - the worldwide reliance on disposable plastic packaging is overwhelming our planet. By 2050, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by weight.  Plastic pollution and climate change are parallel global emergencies and we must reduce our collective plastic footprint.

Along with The Sandoway House and the Delray Beach Children’s Garden, WiseTribe invites you to become part of the solution. Join us for a community project which makes us wiser about using plastics.

This two-part event is both conversation and action: With students from Carver Middle School and upcycling experts, we will show you how to turn plastic bottles into container gardens from 2pm to 4pm.  From 4pm to 6pm, participate a community conversation to learn from conservation experts simple ways to forgo single-use plastics in your daily life. Together, as a community, we will hatch an action plan for supporting Delray-based restaurants with moving away from using straws.
