General information

In 2018 we created the "Plastic Family", an artistic installation made of plastic remains found on the beaches of Gipuzkoa and Iparralde. The objective of the installation was to make visible the large amount of waste that ends up at sea every day. For a year "Plastic Family" toured the beaches of Donostia and Biarritz, arrived at the European Parliament and inaugurated the first World Impact Summit 2019 in Bordeaux, attracting public attention and promoting media dissemination on the environmental problem.

Appreciating the success of the „Plastic Family“ we propose a new idea for 2019/2020, bringing the characters of the Plastic Family to life.

Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign

Together with the Basque illustrator Aritz Trueba we have developed the „Plastic Family“ comic, designed in an easy and convenient format to spread among schools and public spaces, as well as appealing to all types of public interested in the subject and / or format. With the Plastic Family as protagonists we want to tell everyday stories with an educational touch and with a subtlety of humor to raise awareness about the problem of contamination.

All the content of the comic is developed based on the creative contribution of society, offering the opportunity to tell us their ideas, stories, their vision on the problem or simply the life of a family in our environment that, like many, is surrounded constantly of plastic products.

Why this is important

Each family produces an average of 125 kg of plastic each year. Most of it ends in the sea, the same sea that we adore and enjoy so much. We are the cause of the problem, therefore we should also be part of the solution.

The project is aimed at all Donostiarras and visitors of our city, and any other corner of the world coast that is affected by plastic pollution. We want to deliver our message to the little ones, to their parents and grandparents, to politicians, scientists, amateurs and professionals, to all of us who can contribute something to improve the plasticized image that day after day we show to the Ocean.


Team and experience

Panthalassa is a global collective of creatives, artists, filmmakers and photographers with a special sensitivity for the Ocean.

Our award-winning work covers all kinds of formats, from videos and art sculptures, to digital installations, and has been presented on world-renowned platforms such as National Geographic, the European Parliament and Nowness.

With each of our projects Panthalassa aims to raise awareness about beauty, but at the same time the fragility of the Ocean, educate society on key issues or simply stimulate their senses. / http://www.panthalassa.tv

In this project we collaborate with Daniela Garreton, artist - illustrator who uses different artistic techniques to create her work whose main theme is marine flora and fauna and the people related to it, and BEE IN, a family start-up from Latvia that has transformed its passion for nature and the tradition of beekeeping in the best 100% plastic-free alternative for food storage. We also have the collaboration of Aquarium of San Sebastián and Navegavela, the lighthouses of maritime life in Euskadi.
