Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Joe
Description - This design was created by Joe during an art and science workshop as part of the ‘Our Plastic Oceans’ project run by Crùbag, in collaboration with Taynuilt Primary School, Renuka Ramanujam, & the Scottish Association of Marine Science (SAMS).
We, the children of primary 7/6 at Taynuilt Primary School in Scotland, wanted to communicate a message:
My Design - "My design shows a car being engulfed in a cloud of pollution and the human race is in the corner who is fading away. He is wondering what we have done as he is looking up at the mountain of plastic, junk and pollution.
Then we go under the sea to the fish swimming in microplastics which are closing in on the fish with plastic strands wrapping around them.
I used mono printing to create the background and mixed different colours, painted them on to bits of paper and cut them out to create the person and the car. I used collaging to put it all together. I used bright colours for the plastic around the fish as plastic is made to be bright so people buy it ☹ " - Joe, P7, Taynuilt Primary.
Giving Back - £5.00 from the purchase of each notebook are donated to Taynuilt Primary School. The money collected will be managed by the pupils who will choose how much will go to plastic pollution research charities and institutions like SAMS and how much will be used to purchase new science equipment for the school that may otherwise be inaccessible.
Composition and Size - Notebooks are A5 in size. Traditionally hand-bound with organic cotton and high quality paper. Actual colours may vary from the website display.
Join the mission - These sustainable, colourful and ocean-inspired notebooks are designed by children because they care and want to do more, they are such an inspiration! Each notebook is a bundle of joy and a conversation starter. Every purchase supports marine science and important teaching initiatives to bring environmental sciences closer to the primary pupils right before they go to high school. Don't miss out on these rare collectable pieces. Be part of the mission.
