More responsible living has partnered with Surfrider Kauai Chapter to bring marine debris art into schools around Kauai. Students learn about ocean plastic, participate in a beach cleanup, sort, wash and process their marine debris and then make amazing art. This 16' mural was deisigned and directed by one of our artists, but the mural itself was created by over 90 5th grade students at Kalaheo Elementary School. Dozens of parents volunteered to orchestrate the event, and even the senator showed up. The mural hangs at the front of the school.
Since 2018, More Responsible Living has been partnering with Surfrider Kauai Chapter to hold an annual ghost net wreath workshop. Participants sort through large piles of nets that have been removed from Kauai beaches by Surfrider Volunteers while learning about marine debris, and how to reduce plastic consumption. Each participant takes home a wreath that they can use every year.
More Responsible Living creates community art so that our volunteers feel like they have been part of something bigger themselves. Some of our projects include the building of ghost net Christmas Trees and other marine debris sculptures. Sadly, our efforts were put to a halt during covid, but we hope to be getting back to community art if there is still an interest. If your business would like to sponsor a project, please contact us.
More Responsible Living Participates in locally sponsored beach cleanups with organizers such as: Surfrider Kauai Chapter, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, & TS Restaurants. Many of our individual artists also do their own solo cleanups on a regular basis.
