Let’s make some recycled art… together!
With Earth Day around the corner on Wednesday, April 22, I wanted this post to focus on one world issue that is often highlighted on Earth Day and has a direct connection with our global waters–trash, especially in our oceans. According to Ocean Conservancy, approximately eight million metric tons of plastic goes into our oceans annually.* This global issue is overwhelming, and can also seem like there isn’t much we can do as individuals. However, if everyone in the world does something small, then all together we can make a big impact. No matter our age, we can at least try to be more conscious of what we’re buying and what we’re doing with waste. That means not littering and preventing that trash from getting into our waterways. Sometimes, that waste can be reused and repurposed into something else, even something like recycled art!
