STORY BEHIND PLASTISEA….
The intriguing River Nore and our very own scenic Kilkenny City played backdrop to Kilkenny City Vocational School’s 2018 Junk Kouture Recycling Competition entry, PLASTISEA.
The school are still flying high from the All Ireland success of 2017. Where so many others struggle to retain standard, the school have returned with a challenging and compelling entry. The deadline for the 2018 competition was 27th January which required photographs, concepts and a summary of the design.
PLASTISEA highlights the danger our much loved waters are currently facing. Did you know that by 2050 there will be MORE plastic than fish in the sea? To create awareness of this issue, the dress is made of plastic materials you would find in your everyday bathroom; all of which are often carelessly thrown away. These include plastic PVC shower curtains, shower mats, shower puffs, plastic name badges and some other household plastic.
Every day aquatic life including fish, whales, dolphins are suffering every day. These beautiful creatures are killed by the plastic filling up their organs. PLASTISEA is the voice of students of Kilkenny City Vocational School, representing our waters near and far beyond.
The project saw a cross curricular approach from Home Economics, Art and Metalwork to name but a few. The students and their teacher will find out if they have made it to Regional Finals on the 8th February, where the competition will then progress to a public vote. The very best of luck to all involved!
