Beach Plastic Holiday Cards

  • A series of 4 holiday greeting cards designed using 100% beach plastic I’ve collected on my local beaches in New Jersey and 
    New York. $1 from every card purchase made during the month of December 2018 will be / was donated to the Surfrider Foundation to aide their worldwide beach clean up efforts. I always sort what I can for recycling, but know that a majority of it 
    will sadly end up in landfill. This doesn’t sit right with me because while *yes* it IS better that it’s not in the ocean… it’s not 
    exactly *much* better to bury it into the earth somewhere else. The sentiment makes me feel powerless… and so I’ve 
    started keeping an assortment of the plastics I pick up. It’s physically impractical for me to keep it ALL - but I plan to use 
    what I can to create art and continue the important conversation through that art. I keep coming back to the Carrie Fisher quote: “Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
