WHO WE ARE
What is Flossie and The Beach Cleaners? This initiative was formed by my 12 year old daughter Flossie. She is committed to raising awareness about plastic pollution and the damage it is doing to our marine life and oceans. She is taking that message around Ireland and beyond. Fun, positive and meaningful climate action for kids.
Looking at the issue of climate action through Flossie’s eyes, we feel it is very important for children not to feel scared or powerless. They are getting messages that can make them feel like the world is coming to an end. However, the answer lies with them, and as adults we can empower them to take control. As long as they are active and positive they can make a difference to the planet and have fun at the same time. This charity is designed to empower the next genera?on to engage in effective, practical activities that make a real difference to our planet, both locally and globally.
We promote inclusion through our many activities:
Through unique workshops for primary school children and corporate groups, explaining plastic pollution and what we can do to change our way of life.
By connecting with countries on the other side of the world who are dealing with plastic rivers, for example: Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, Sri Lanka etc.
By linking children from countries where there are plastic rivers and no refuse systems with junior school children in Ireland, so that they can teach each other what can be done to clean up, and what can be made out of the rubbish they find.
