A black plastic bag tells us about its daily life made of discoveries and misadventures. It knows it is very useful to different people but they abuse it and make of it a dangerous and polluting object, carrier of diseases.
Le Sachet voyageur‘s humorous story aims to draw young people’s attention to environmental problems, castigates irresponsible and non-citizen like behavior and urgently calls for the protection of the environment for a better life in the city.
Eric Kobla WONANU’s illustrations and photographs by Jacques Do Kokou and Wody YAWO realistically recreate the life of the Traveling Plastic Bag.
