My name is Marianne de Groot-Pons, graphic designer of Pons Ontwerp visual communication in Utrecht and initiator of Marie Bee Bloom.In all the years I’ve been working as a graphic designer, I’ve also polluted the earth with my designs for prints and packaging, so I want to do something back for the earth. At the same time, I want to bring the subject of ‘roaming and sinking disposable plastic and the ban on it from 1 July 2021’ back into the spotlight. After stumbling for weeks over all the blue disposable masks on the street, I woke up one morning with the idea of a biodegradable mask with flower seeds inside. Earth happy, bees happy, nature happy, people happy. I sell the mask under the name Marie Bee Bloom. Bloom the world!
