We rely on our oceans in countless ways, but most importantly, right now, as a global climate regulator. This means that if the ocean is sick, then we, too, are sick. Newsflash! We're all sick!
To help change this, our government is banning all single-use plastics, including straws, six-pack rings, stir sticks, bags, cutlery and food-ware made from hard-to-recycle plastics, by end of 2021! Look…I get it. I hate paper straws too. They turn to mush before you’ve even had your 3rd sip. But I'll get over it to save the ocean, and I hope you will too!
I created Pieces Against Plastic to help change this. I create ocean art which sparks conversation about how the health of the oceans directly relate to our health as a species, on land.
