We had been wanting to give back in a meaningful way and were looking for a non-profit organization to sponsor when we heard Dr Elaine Leung speaking on CBC radio against the use of single use plastic straws. We liked her and her passion, and invited her to our studio to show her what we are doing and talk about how we could support Sea Smart School.
Sea Smart is a non-profit that uses fun, hands-on games and activities to inspire and empower kids in Kindergarten to Grade 12 to love and protect our oceans in our school workshops, after school programs, and summer camps in Metro Vancouver.
We are proud to provide straws for the kids and also for public events as well as funding school programs. Elaine Leung, the founder, has a passion for the environment and educating our youth that is contagious.
