As some of you may know, Friendly Drifter has been creating a children’s book to educate young minds on the harmful effects plastic waste has on the environment. Education plays major role in creating a sustainable waste management system for Raja Ampat. The initial idea for creating such a book came to me when I received an email from Peter during my Ocean Rescue Run. It turns out Peter owns Borsi, a plastic molding business in Germany that produces automobile parts. He knows the importance of doing what we can to protect the environment. Peter has helped other similar projects in the past through his organization, Industry Responsibility. Peter offered a donation and asked what it could be used for. I’ve always had it in mind to include educational material, so I thought this was a great opportunity. The premise was created. Then I was on the lookout for people as passionate as me about the area, and the environment.
