This art piece is inspired by our beautiful Sea Turtles that roam our ocean. Let's save these animals by switching out everyday items for something more sustainable. For instance, exchange a plastic toothbrush for a bamboo toothbrush. Another easy swap is instead of plastic bottles and cups, use glass cups and stainless steel water bottles. These really easy replacements can help our 'āina (land) become more beautiful.
The ocean is an important place to me because as a surfer, I grew more connected to the ocean. I feel that as people, we have a responsibility to take care of our planet and ocean. I use micro plastics sourced from the shores of O'ahu and incorporate it into my designs to create an art pieces. Getting these micro plastics off the beach, we are making a difference for our future gens.
