We create awareness and connection, necessary to achieve our goal.
With joint cleanups and community art . The cleanups in which we will clean up the local population and the children, cities and beaches.
But we do more… we reuse part of the waste in art: community art. Visual arts , theater performances or joint music projects .
This creates awareness about reuse , pleasure and above all pride !
