Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Eliza
Description - This design was created by Eliza 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 is about how I think the future will be. I think it will be worse than it is now because plastic is the most useful material and we might not stop using it. I also think one day there might be more plastic than fish in the sea.
To make it I first stuck smaller pieces of blue paper to one bigger piece of white paper. Then I cut out some of my mono printings of fish and plastics and stuck them down. I used seaweed and stamped it to make it look like coral.
I used purple to make it stand out against the blue." - Eliza, P6, 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.
