Surfrider Foundation Europe – Riverine Input Project: Doors to the ocean
The project “Riverine Input” aims to collect data on the plastic pollution in watercourses. These data are supposed to help municipalities to prevent the pollution before it reaches the ocean. Rain water collection systems are main pathways for litter to reach the rivers and the ocean.
The Surfrider Foundation Europe performs actions during public events like festivals to raise awareness about plastic pollution (currently in France). Manholes will be tagged with several graphics to indicate that these are “doors” to the ocean. The tags will be accompanied by the French slogan: “Jeter à terre c’est jeter en mer” (which means: to litter on the ground is to litter into the sea).
For these actions I created several street art like stencil templates. The action will take place during the Mont-de-Marsan festival fêtes de la Madeleine for the first time.
