How to Participate

Throughout the month of July, visit as many #PlasticFreeMB businesses as possible. You can identify member businesses on the #PlasticFreeMB map HERE. Each time you visit a business you will receive 1 entry. To officially submit your visit you must either:

If you have an Instagram account: (i) post a photo of your visit to your Instagram story, (ii) tag the business’s IG account (or Geo-tag the location if the business is not on Instagram), (iii) tag @debrisfreeoceans, (iv) tag @miamibeachnews, and (v) hashtag #PlasticFreeMB

If you do not have an Instagram account: (i) email the picture to Maddie@Debrisfreeoceans.org and (ii) indicate what business you visited. We will then post this to our story on your behalf.
The more businesses you visit, the more entries you will receive for the prize pool!

Winners will be randomly selected and announced via @DebrisFreeOceans Instagram Live on Sunday, August 1st, at 7pm!

Please note that there are different levels of the #PlasticFreeMB program. Although some businesses may still have some single-use plastic products at their location, all businesses that are a part of the program have at a minimum eliminated single-use plastic straws and bags from their operations (Level 1), and many more have eliminated all eligible single-use plastics items (Level 3).
