Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Isla
Description - This design was created by Isla 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 that animals in the water are really happy and I think our future will have less plastic. My picture shows a turtle, shark and fish living a happy, longer life with no plastic surrounding them.
I made my picture by taking a piece of bumpy seaweed and painting on the bumps which I then printed on to a piece of paper to make the stones. For the picture I used collaging to add the animals." - Isla, P7, Kilchrenan 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.
