28 Feb Plastic Fantastic Kenya – Teaching mindfulness and environmental stewardship through art
Founder: Ciru Segal
Plastic Fantastic teaches kids mindfulness and environmental stewardship through the arts. To support their mission, they co-create upcycled handcrafts with professional artisans using plastic waste collected through the Plastic Fantastic education program. Using a fun, evidence-based experience they teach children mindfulness and the importance of our actions on the environment.
What started as a venture on a mission to draw attention to the plastic pollution crisis by making handcrafts out of plastic waste (known as upcycling), Plastic Fantastic Kenya has since evolved into an educational vehicle that uses waste, mindfulness and art as tools to socially transform children, artisans and consumers.
