Alien invasive species is one of the main reasons why our indigenous species may die out in 50 years time. This campiagn is created to protect our indignous species. To create an awareness and to get people to start showing support and doing something about the problem. I use the act of knitting as a metaphor in this campaign. We knit a garment for someone with love and care and to protect them from the cold. This same love and care must go into the our indigenous plants that must be protected. Thats why the plants gets wrapped with white wool to indicate what plants are indigenous and for awareness. Then discarded overprinted material is cut up and handed out to the public inviting them to knit fot the campaign, making them part of the cause. The pieces that is knit by the public will join the white knittng. after the awereness campaign these pieces that were knitted will be used to make products like scarfs, blankets and beanies that will be donated to the less fortunate South-Africans. And supporters products fot the public who participated these supporters products will als be sold. Read Less
