The lost stars project / recycling project

The lost stars project
The lost stars project

In today's popular large-scale beach cleanup events, we find that microplastics are often overlooked. Furthermore, the impact of microplastics on marine life is not only to a single species, but also to the whole ecosystems.

We hope to strengthen people's awareness of the marine environment thought ''The Lost Stars Project.''

By participating in the beach cleanup involved in the project, people would actually learned about the presence of microplastics. Then, people could achieve recycling through re-making microplastics into vases and planting plants in them.
