Art Splash (9/22-23/2012)

    

Along with dedicated volunteers, New Ocean Blue reached out to the community at Art Splash to spread the word about plastic pollution. Both kids and adults were educated through a variety of informational panels as well as the shark puppet craft, which showed kids how to turn garbage into something more.

Trash to Art at La Jolla Library (9/8/2012)

New Ocean Blue turned the trash that we found on the beaches of San Diego with the Surfrider Foundation to an art piece!

Please go check out the art at the La Jolla Library until November!

Kimberly and Megan meet Captain Charles Moore

Kimberly and Megan were given the chance to meet Captain Charles Moore, the person credited with discovering the garbage patches. At the Living Coast Discovery Center, Captain Moore gave a fascinating talk about the effects of plastic on our planet. Did you know that plastic can contribute to global warming by coating the bottom of the ocean, which absorbs most of the CO2 in the world?

Carlsbad Beach Fest

New Ocean Blue reached out to the community to tackle this issue. We displayed eye-opening pictures, facts, and information that struck a chord in order to show how big the issue is.
