Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Isobel
Description - This design was created by Isobel 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 two shells all around microplastics and microfibres. At the sides there are fish and seaweed around plastic.I used mono printing for the shells and cut out the fish then coloured them with crayon. For the microplastics I got a net and mixed different colours so they would stand out and cut it in to small pieces and stuck it all down.
I think the future will be a little bit worse because some or most people are not helping or understanding what is happening in the world. - Isobel, 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.
