Divert NS has teamed up with the Discovery Centre to inspire environmental change-makers of all ages in a Divert NS Ocean Action Zone exhibit at the Discovery Centre on the Halifax waterfront.
With the look and feel of a working research lab, visitors approaching the exhibit start by exploring samples of waste found during a local shoreline clean-up to understand and appreciate the impact of waste once it enters the ocean. As visitors explore further, they take a deeper dive into the story of plastics within our oceans, learning how it gets there, its long lifespan, and its impact on us and aquatic life.
The Divert NS Ocean Action Zone aims to inspire young people to feel empowered and take action in their community—to reduce the waste that is making its way into our oceans.

Did you know that plastic drink bottles and caps are one of the top-ten most collected items in shoreline cleanups?
Carrying a reusable water bottle prevents plastic drink bottles from entering the ocean. If you use plastic bottles, return them for a refund and recycling at your nearest Enviro-Depot™.
