Plastic Workshop

Gothenburg, Sweden

Lesson: Plastic Workshop
Can an old toothbrush become a seahorse?

Plastic can be used for almost anything, but it has a huge impact on our environment, for example, on our seas where an enormous amount of plastic rubbish is dumped. We can’t afford to throw away the plastic! The biggest myth about plastic is that it is a disposable product. What does recycling actually mean? What kinds of recyling are there? We are inspired by and visit the Maritime Museum Aquarium’s big new temporary exhibition OUT TO SEA? to thereafter reuse material and objects for our own creations.
