I, Anita Waltman, love the sea. I swam, dived and also sailed the seas with the Clipper Stad Amsterdam. A few years ago I heard about the ‘Plastic Soup’. At that moment I was studying autonomous art at the Art Academy, St Joost in Den Bosch. From this moment on this incredible story was my inspiration for my further study. Today I am graduated and decided to start de STIKSOEP foundation.
Stiksoep wants to get the attention from as many people as possible. We are convinced that when you tackle this issue in a creative way the awareness will increase. We all use plastic , but can it be a little less. What are we doing with the plastic waste? How can we prevent that it ends up in the rivers and the oceans?
The plastic Soup problem has become so big that governments can’t solve it on their own. Moreover because the oceans are from everybody and nobody governments haven’t been able to solve this plastic garbage problem successfully.
For this reason we have to do something about it ourselves…
Stiksoep hopes that society will take its own responsibility and that everyone will be aware of the consequences of just throwing plastic away into the environment. It helps if we recycle and buy less plastic.
