The idea behind this project came from the desire and need of our association to contribute to solving this burning global problem – plastic pollution. Unless we change our thinking and our habits at this point, nature as we know it may no longer exist. By destroying nature, we not only destroy the beautiful environment and the various animal species, but we also destroy our future and compromise the future of our children and the future of all living things. If solidarity is about helping someone in need, then now is the right time to help our planet and future generations. Every day, we are bombarded with pictures, facts, and tips on social networks about how to reduce plastic waste, which is good of course, but we think that all this information is just another post on Facebook or Instagram that we see and move on. In this exchange, we want to raise awareness among young people, educate and encourage them to work to change their collective consciousness, collaborate and design new projects, and become examples in their local communities to follow.
