Happy World Octopus Day! Thursday 8th October 2020 saw World Octopus Day and we couldn't let our inky friends go unrecognised. Octopuses have long been the creature of myths and legends and we would love to see your artwork to depict this fantastic underwater beast. For the very lucky artists whose pictures give us the inkiest glow, we will offer a copy of one of our all-time favourite books- Jonny Duddle's The Pirate Cruncher. As a teacher of twenty-odd years myself, I have had many a happy hour studying (and playing) with this amazing story of greed and skullduggery and I would love to share that with you too!

Here at The Ink Bin, we are dedicated to keeping plastic ink cartridges from landfill sites and recycle every last cartridge that comes to us via our Ink Bins. We support schools and other organisations to collect home use cartridges from their community and send them to us for recycling. We would love to support your community too- whether it's a school, plastic-free group, church or refill room. Please do check out our website form more details- CLICKETYCLICK.

So, please do email or text across your pictures to us. We would love to see how far we can reach, but for the lucky winner in the U.K. you will receive your very own copy of Jonny's book in the post.

Photographs of your very own octopussy artwork can be emailed to or WhatsApped directly to 07712577528

Winners announced FRIDAY 16th OCTOBER 2020 via our Facebook Page- The Ink Bin

Happy Arting! Becky x
