10,000 Changes – Be An Early Adopter for Canadian Geographic

Posted by benjaminaube1 on June 5th, 2019


Hey ocean lovers! We got the inside scoop that Canadian Geographic's VERY cool 10,000 Changes project will officially be launching next week. They would love to have some Ocean Bridge alumni or current participants take part!

10,000 Changes was created in partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada, the Recycling Council of Ontario, and Strut Creative as a way to inform and motivate individual Canadians to take action on the problem of plastic pollution and champion solutions within communities, businesses and organizations across Canada.

One of the ways they're engaging individual Canadians is by getting them to make commitments to rethink their consumption of single-use plastics. This section of the site is not live yet, but making a commitment will be as easy as clicking on a tile and writing in a statement like "I commit to bringing a reusable bottle with me on the go" or "I commit to saying no to single-use straws." 

Other Canadians will then be able to select the "Commitments" that best suit them and add them to a virtual "Shopping Cart" of sorts that they'll be able to customize for themselves – a really cool idea!

To help spread the program's messages and calls to action far and wide, CanGeo is looking for early adopters to make commitments, and then share those commitments with their social media and professional networks. They're also looking for people who are willing to make a short video talking about their commitments and encouraging others to sign on to the program.

If you or anyone you can think of wants to get involved with 10,000 Changes and help get the word out, please contact Ben at benjamin.aube@ocean.org and I'll be happy to answer your questions or connect you directly with our friends at CanGeo who can provide additional details/guidance.

Looking forward to hearing from you! :)
