Past Programmes


PFS Youth Conference


The Plastic Free Seas Youth Conference 2013 was all about solutions to plastic pollution problems. It’s about empowering you, your school & your community to adopt changes & make BIG impacts. What you do counts!

Coastal Watch


Coastal Watch’s aim was to clean up Hong Kong’s coastlines and trace the sources of marine litter by performing litter and ecological surveys, ultimately helping the government formulate effective long-term solutions to our persistent marine litter problem.

PFS Sea Classroom


The Little Blue Trawler, a 15.6m converted ex-fishing trawler housed the PFS Sea Classroom.  Through experiential, hands-on learning, over 2000 students were immersed in the topic of plastic marine pollution using elements of science, marine biology, geography, English, mathematics, current affairs and sustainability as well as through remote area beach cleanup activities.

Discovery Bay teachers Jonny Haines and Tim Tait took on the challenge to SUP around Lantau Island over 5 consecutive days. Raising money and highlighting the issue of plastic pollution.

#ArtVplastic Project


Sometimes it takes something beautiful to beat something ugly. That's why two of Hong Kong's celebrated artists Martin Lever and William Furniss, have created a collection of stunning artwork celebrating Hong Kong's precious coastline.

Focus on Our Seas Fundraiser


Plastic Free Seas held its first fundraiser. The theme was 'Art' and we joined forces with multiple artists to create artwork from much of our found beach treasures.
