Today I received a bracelet from Sally Heinrich, from the environmental group 4Ocean, which has been made/recycled from ocean trash.
One pound of trash was removed from the ocean to make this bracelet. The beads are of recycled glass and the blue band from recycled plastic.
4Ocean collects ocean trash and removes it from the ocean. You can imagine that it is an almost impossible job…but it has to start somewhere. Of course the best solution would be for less plastic being bought by consumers, but that will take a whole new headset to start eliminating plastic from your life.
Sally and I are working on another story, this one involving plastic and rubbish in the ocean, which we hope a publisher will pick up and want for their list.
