Our cause this week is helping our oceans and lessening plastic pollution — you can find a recap of the problem here.
Here’s a small sample (our favorites!) of who we love who are helping our oceans:
Washed Ashore builds and exhibits aesthetically powerful art to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in oceans and waterways and spark positive changes in consumer habits. It was founded by artist and educator, Angela Haseltine Pozzi and has processed tons of plastic pollution from Pacific beaches to create monumental art that is awakening the hearts and minds of viewers to the global marine debris crisis. See their beautiful sculptures and learn more here.
Sea Legacy creates powerful media to change the narrative around the world’s oceans. Their mission is to inspire the global community to protect our oceans, which they do through the power of storytelling. They are a collective of experienced and renowned photographers, filmmakers and storytellers, so perhaps it’s best to just watch their film and see their passion come to life. You can watch it here!
Bye Bye Plastic Bags is a social initiative led by children to make Bali say no to plastic bags. With a focus on education and a pilot village where they’re distributing alternative bags to local shops, their efforts are gaining reactions from youth all around the world.
