VOLUNTEER AN HOUR ON YOUR COMPUTER

Spend an hour each week or month on your computer to help us grow Plastic Free Oceans.  

Invite friends to sign up and be a HERO.  Also, to volunteer – that really accelerates things. 

Post each week to your page and share the post to Facebook or Twitter.  

Try to get one message to one famous person – singer, sports star, blogger, Youtuber, journalist – if they share it will supercharge your impact.  

Spend most of your time Adopting a Town – accommodation businesses as the first target.  

Log the time in the volunteer panel when you are logged in.  That adds to the grand total of volunteer hours.
