Have a listen to Episode 309 The Vault and a look on the 99% Invisible website to see a photo of the botanist who started it all!
Emmerson went to LUSH Live Central with Eco Marine last month to share with visitors what she had seen in Svalbard. She got to show the ocean plastic found on the landings.
She also helped out with the workshop to upcycle Hong Kong beach trash into art.
Here's some of the trash collected from a beach in Hong Kong made into a backdrop and the #unnaturepile made from plastic lighters (and a phone!) washed ashore. When was the last time Emmerson was at the phone?
Remember to ask yourself— What can I do?
Your everyday choices and actions matter! We can all do our part in this plastic madness.
Glad you're joining us here. I'm an artist + educator learning and creating from the amazing things encountered adventuring in Svalbard in the high Arctic and around the world.
