A 12-year-old from the other side of the country, Annelie Miller, from Mill Valley Middle School in California, decided she wanted to do something significant for the sake of our oceans in honor of World Ocean Day. She had been creating art out of non-recyclable materials as well as hand-painting pictures and notecards. She sent a letter out to family and friends explaining the perils caused by plastic marine debris and asked that they purchase her art as a fundraiser for Plastic Ocean Project, Inc. She must have sold a lot of her work because she raised over $700! This donation that will help keep our research and outreach going. Annelie has allowed us to post her painting found on Shutterfly, click here. Thank you Annelie for your generosity, thoughtfulnes, and your passion for the sea. You have not only honored the ocean, but have helped us continue the work we do for the sake of our seas. Annelie will be appearing on the http://sustainabilitynewsandentertainment.com/ with Diana Dehm. Date and time TBA.
