Samudra Manthan Typeface by Recykal: Uniting Efforts to Combat Ocean-Bound Plastic on World Ocean Day 2024

Sharing is caring!

Imagine a world where every curve, every letter stroke tells a story—a story of aquatic ecosystems ravaged by plastic debris, of carbon emissions choking our planet, and of marine life imperilled by habitat destruction. This is the essence of the Samudra Manthan Typeface, which makes a bold statement against plastic pollution and chronicles our collective responsibility to combat one of the most pressing challenges of our time.

Our campaign leverages the art of storytelling in a truly unique and daring manner. Each letter of the alphabet encapsulates a specific facet of the interwoven set of difficulties surrounding plastic pollution. By seamlessly integrating these letters into our branding across all Recykal platforms, we aim to engage, educate, and inspire action through the potent medium of visual communication.

Inspired by Samudra Manthan, one of the major Indian ancient episodes—the churning of the ocean for elixir or amrit—the Samudra Manthan Typeface serves as a modern-day allegory, symbolising the collective effort required to address the pressing issue of plastic pollution.

Under the initiative ‘Samudra Manthan’ (inspired by the Indian mythological tale of ocean churning for a heavenly drink to achieve immortality), Recykal has collected over 70,000 metric tons of plastic from 207 districts across 19 states in India. Among these districts, 33 have coastal areas, and 173 are located on the banks of major rivers, covering a 10 km radius from ocean and river coasts. On National Pollution Control Day, Recykal revealed plans to scale up the ‘Samudra Manthan’ project to cover all 66 coastal districts across India.
