About this Art:

Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun + rain to make vibrant colors appear. Creating art out of micro plastics found on the beach resembles this. It’s sad to see how many plastics we find at the beach, but we reuse the plastics to create art. This way we help address the amount of trash found in an art form. When you see trash on the ground, pick it up, because you don’t know what animal could potentially eat or get harmed by it.

Melia's Story:

The ocean is a special place. It brings happiness and peace. As a surfer I want to help the sea life and our beaches stay clean from trash. I collect the mircoplastics from the beaches all around O'ahu. With these plastics I create art. This is a great way to make just a little difference and it can also be a pretty piece of artwork to put in your home. If you ask me, I think this is a win win for both our beaches and ourselves.
