The Bertie Bottle Campaign want to highlight the problems caused by litter and single use plastics. The campaign believe strongly in educating the future generation. Bertie Bottle have already written a storybook which is aimed at primary school aged young people. The story will follow Bertie Bottle as he is discarded on a beach and ends up in the ocean. The rhyming story will highlight the issues litter causes to wildlife and will provide some facts regarding litter and single use plastics along with some ideas on how to make a difference! The Bertie Bottle Campaign are current fundraising to enable the book to be prepared and published, with Bertie Bottle self-funding the majority of the project. The book is currently in the process of being illustrated. Bertie Bottle is looking for funding to enable us to produce the story book and enable us to enter into discussion with local schools and councils regarding using the book within primary schools.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The benefits of our project is immense. The project will provide a fun educational book for young people with an important message surrounding environmental issues. We have lots of ideas as to how we can provide Bertie Bottle as a package to schools to use when discussing environmental issues within school (including providing lesson plans, Bertie Bottle puppet and computer educational apps). The younger generation are the future and they are the ones that can make the changes. We would hope that the book would inspire children to think more about the environment and encourage them to make positive change. We already have ideas on additional stories - Bertie meeting sharks and highlighting the issue of shark finning and Bertie highlight why we should recycle and reduce our single use plastics are just two examples of future book ideas.
Steps to get it done:
The Bertie Bottle campaign is trying to make a difference. We are a family who want to see positive changes and we want to inspire the further generation to have the confidence to believe that they too can make a difference.
