Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Lilly
Description - This design was created by Lilly 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 a turtle getting caught in a fishing net and the fish eating loads of plastic bags and plastic bottles. I made this design to show people what is happening in the sea. My design shows loads of microplastics and I think the future will be the same because plastic is very useful unfortunately. I used a piece of plastic which was like threads that went in and out each other and painted it blue like the sea. I then stuck that down on a piece of paper and painted the plastic red. Doing that gave it a cool effect." - Lilly, 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.
