Why Plastic Madonna
The statue wants to grab people's attention because...
The greatest challenge humanity faces is people believing that what they can do to change the world for the better is too small to make any difference. The Plastic Madonna Project proofs that your small step is a giant leap for mankind. We now use the Plastic Soup as an example, because it is the most convincing one.
Plastic litter is caused by humans
100% of litter is caused by people who believe their tiny littered piece won't make any difference
Plastic Soup it's main contributor is plastic litter
80% of the plastic soup consists out of landbased plastic litter
Plastic Soup is a dish.
No-one knows how much plastic is entering our food chain. Plastic litter is bad for our health, you can bet on that.
Power of one habit
If 25% of the people pick up one piece of litter every day, the growth of the Plastic Soup, 8 billion kilos every year, will come to a halt.
12 mtr 3D-printed statue
Plastic Madonna is a project to change humanity's believe-system.
Step 1 (finished)
Prove that if people collectively doing almost nothing, e.g. pick up a stone, together we move a mountain.
Step 2 (in progress)
In the same way as step 1 -a lot of people doing almost nothing- we want to collect the funds to print the 12 meter long statue ‘Plastic Madonna.
Step 3 (starting)
Constructing the 12 meter meter large statue. Using the recycled plastic of 100.000 littered plastic bottles, printed by a robot-arm 3D-printer.
Step 4 (Summer 2017)
Exhibiting the statue on the beach of Scheveningen. After that she want’s to visit every city. We provide lectures and talks.
