Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Max
Description - This design was created by Max 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 picture shows a jelly fish with microfibres all over it and a disintegrating bottle. My inspiration was the bottle was in the sea for a long time and got washed up on shore, a jelly fish ate some of the plastic and was not happy ☹. My favourite thing about my picture was the bottle, I liked the hole in the bottle.
I used a roller to roll out the paint, put my piece of paper in the tray and drew my designs. When I had done that I pressed down on the paper and peeled it off. Then it was done." - Max, P6, 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.
