Ecology Exhibition

August 30, 2017

At the beginning of this year, India’s capital city Delhi had introduced a ban on disposable plastic. Cutlery, bags, cups and other forms of single-use plastic were prohibited. According to The Times of India, the country is responsible for 60 per cent of the plastic that is dumped in the world’s oceans every year. Kerala’s capital, Thiruvananthapuram (short: Trivandrum), has banned all types of plastic carry bags within it’s limits from March 1, 2017 onward.

At the end of February there was a three weeks during ‘Ecology’ exhibition in Trivandrum, where several organisation who work with sustainable resources to compensate the plastic where showing their work. Examples of their products are paper bags, different accessories out of materials like bamboo, wood and coconut shells, sustainable drinking bottles…

 

Since our SEP and project students were already producing paper bags and working with coconut shells, we were happy to show our creativity at this exhibition. We brought paper- and cotton bags and different items made out of coconut shell like lamps, earrings, pots, bowls, bangles and key chains. The purpose of this exhibition was not to leave with profit from what people bought, but to aware people; to make a move to stop the global warming, to work towards a better planet for the future of our children. Beside of this, it was nice to meet new people and to make new contacts for possible collaborations.
