Secure a safe planet for us, animals and marine life; a safe environment. One hundred thousand marine animals died in 2020 due to plastic waste. Single- use plastic kills nature, animals, fish, and us.
6 students from Campion school, joined under one vision: to contribute in the reduction of single-use plastic. We created a Caretta- Caretta turtle, a protected species in Greece, sculpture made from 100% plastic waste collected by us, Costa Navarino and Ifantis to spread our message: ‘Single-Use Plastic Kills’. We collected more than 20 big bags of plastic, whilst cleaning beaches.
We approached Archelon the sea turtle protection society for Caretta-Caretta turtles in Greece, Blue cycle the NGO on marine plastic waste for help and support. Blue Cycle with their equipment helped us re-use the plastic we collected which provided us with the raw materials for Tatiana Panagiotidi (the sculpture artist) to create the art object.
The Caretta-Caretta sculpture will be accessible in Costa Navarino ‘Natura Hall’ this summer.
We had a vision to save the planet, animas, marine life, humanity.
Save the future.
