Hello everyone… well it’s been 3 months since the end of my 30/30 Experiment in Huntington Beach. I spent 1 hour a day for 30 days picking up trash on the shoreline. I started at the River Jetty on the Newport/ Huntington border and ended up at the Bolsa Chica Inlet. I collected 580.4 lbs of trash averaging 19.35 lbs of trash per day.
All my hard work has culminated with the creation of a Wave sculpture made of trash. Tierney Moses and Hannah Cosner from Laguna College of Art and Design contacted me through a post I put up at the college. They created a “Tidal Wave of Trash” made from the trash I collected on the beach. Check out their blog: http://refurbishedrubbish.blogspot.com/ I did help separate the trash and build the frame for the wave but the girls worked countless hours on the wave. I can never thank those ladies enough for all of the great work they did. You rock girls.
The “Tidal Wave of Trash” will debut at the 4th of July parade in Huntington Beach. Thanks to Farmers and Merchants Bank, who is dedicated to the environment and sustainability, for entering the float into the parade. Thanks also to Huntington Beach Chevrolet who is letting us use a Hybrid vehicle to pull the float.
Come out and celebrate the 4th of July in Huntington Beach and check out the “Tidal Wave of Trash” float. I hope to see you there.
