The new movie is about the plastic problem. How do young people handle it themselves? That’s what they tell us in an interview.

Hamburg. A greedy waste entrepreneur throws his waste into the sea. Result: Plastic waste everywhere in the oceans. The new movie “Pepper and the Treasure of the Deep Sea” deals with this issue. Eleven-year-old Charlotte and 14-year-old Leander play two “peppers” in it. In the interview, they tell us what they are doing to improve the environment.

Now that you’re done filming, are you avoiding plastic?

Leander: I already dealt with the subject because I think it is very important. After the movie, I paid more attention than before. For example, in Hamburg I ride a large number of bicycles: I have a racing bike. When shopping, I make sure not to buy too much plastic. Charlotte: This topic has always been of interest to me and I have tried to help. After the movie I realized again how important it really is. If our world is destroyed, it will be terrible. That’s why we mostly go shopping in organic supermarkets and pay more attention to packaging. We drive very little.

Do you have any influence on your parents?

Charlotte: Yes, of course. I sometimes scolded my father, for example, as an exception, when he threw chewing gum out the window. I try to shop in bulk stores.

Do you have any advice for other children about what they can do to make the earth better?

Charlotte: At school we have our own environmental group. You can ask the school management if this is possible in your own school. Or you may be reluctant to clean up the park or anything in your spare time.

Leander: Our school also has a project to collect donations and use them to plant trees. I am involved in it.
