Sustainable Coastlines - Plastic Mosaics

The Sustainable Coastlines team are often doing Workshops in Wynyard Quarter at their Sustainable Coastlines Education Station to get young ones to understand the implications of rubbish in the water. They have gone all over the world collecting rubbish from beaches to minimise the impact on the marine life.  They do an amazing job, and if you ever get to come to one of these workshops, you will be amazed at the amount of rubbish they have collected already!

So with the plastic rubbish the kids get to make whatever colourful artwork they want to from any of the plastic waste they have collected into bins.  Freya chose a template that was already drawn on the wood, but then went for a three dimensional look!
