Create positive awareness and reward with
a unique product

Our kids are the future! When in primary school, they are very enthusiastic and caring about their environment. We believe we can maintain and develop their awareness by the positive approach of our lessons on recycling and by rewarding them with a compelling product.

A good idea

Stichting Wereld Havendagen asked us to come up with an educational program to run the weeks prior to the harbour days, that would suit their theme and make a visible impact during the harbour days. We gave lessons on sustainability and waste but also showed what you can make from plastic waste: a boat!

How did we make it happen

A presentation for primary schools about waste, its consequences and the things we can do with waste by recycling it. Our focus is on plastics, so by making a boat from recycled plastics, we showed the kids the value of plastic waste: it is still a good resource for new products. They wrote a message or wish about a cleaner environment, or even a new product idea for recycled plastic, on these boats. We hung the 1.000 boats on the Erasmus bridge! A real eyecatcher with a clear message on awareness of (plastic) waste.

These companies helped

Stichting Wereld Havendagen was our client and partner in this project. We collected funding for all the materials and got permission from the municipality to use the bridge for displaying 1.000 messages from primary school students.

Plastic waste

During the lessons we talked about plastic waste and kids came up with great ideas to reduce waste in their school or to put the waste to good use. The boats were made from the labels of PET bottles, because when processed it becomes a very flexible recycled material.

The process

For this project we have not collected plastic waste upfront at the schools, but had pre-made boats from recycled post consumer plastic waste. We focussed on the lessons and dialogue with the students. Afterwards we collected all the boats and showed them to the visitors of the harbour days to have a greater impact.

The reward

The reward for participating during the lesson, was making this boat and presenting it. By hanging the boats on the famous Erasmus bridge, for all visitors of the Harbour days to see, all kids got to be proud of the boat they made.

Create awareness

With these lessons we planted ideas and awareness on the kids’ and the school’s way of coping with waste. By making these boats, the kids saw that recycled plastic is a useful resource and talked about their wish solution for a cleaner environment.
