The Droïdes alias Detritus maritimus

Xavier Plantevin, French artist, was born in Tahiti and grew up in Africa. When he came back to France, he got shocked by the quantity of rubbish washed up on the shore in winter when nobody deign to clean the beach if there is not swimmer. Going ahead, he decided to collect by himself the solid waste in order to give them a second life. The Droïdes alias Detritus maritimus were born! His project became so successful that he created the “Wild star production” studio that allows kids to make themselves their own figurines from rubbish.
