TURTALLY PLASTIC-FREE BOY Arlian is taking initiative! He invites other kids to join him. Together they take charge for their future! Starting with education.
The ocean is in big trouble. We depend on it literally with every second breath we take. We would love your support! Please donate to this film to empower our kids and watch their voices become loud and clear. I am raising money to make a film with kids about something they care about. This film will be used in schools as a resource for sustainability education. Kids present the problems and their solutions and connect to each other on a global level.

Let’s get involved. It feels really good!
We are making sure that the film fits in with the school curriculum, we already got the thumbs up for our film from the Government:
“I believe your film would be the perfect catalyst for students to look at the issue of plastic waste and then develop some strategies around reductions, avoidance, reducing plastic litter in school/street-waterways-ocean. Your film shows students from both a learning and leadership perspective”.
Mark Caddey – Senior Project Officer, Sustainable Communities
NSW Office of Environment and Heritage
We are asking for $ 10,000 to make this first film!

The donations will be used for research, production plus post-production as well as distribution.

I am an international film maker. My passion is to focus on social and environmental issues from a cultural perspective.

In 2004, I began working on this vision to connect kids globally together through films for schools on the topic of our environment.

Besides making films about kids and nature, I also have been a birth activist, presenting my films in hospitals, universities and consumer groups, changing the culture of how we see birth. The YouTube Trailer for my film “A Breech in the System” has reached 48 Million Hits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRjSmR9QmYg&t=14s
