Global TRASHformation’s Logo Co-created with Litter and MOOP

I was honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the recent Women’s Prosperity Network’s 9th Annual UNconference, 3.5 day event in Orlando, Florida.  I spoke to an audience of about 300 on my Global TRASHformation movement (which, by the way, was birthed at the 8th annual UNconference, 2015) and offer an opportunity for…

Ocean Gyres

An inconvenient fact: litter is everywhere. Litter: Some floats and some sinks. Overall Health: That means planetary health. Yes, we can break it down into categories like human health, or pollution of streams and waterways, or unsightly by-ways, or potentially hazardous… no matter how you look at it, since it’s all part of the big…

“All Hands on Deck”

The project with Trash to Treasure (T2T) was named “All Hands on Deck.” We were thrilled to be working with such a large object, a 15 foot Cuban refugee boat. The boat was rendered unseaworthy by knocking out large holes toward the bow of the boat, and some areas on each side were structurally compromised.…

Green Cuban Refugee Boat

I mentioned earlier working with Trash to Treasure (T2T) on a project. We had been seeking an object to cover with litter and place in some public beach location. I expected to locate, or have donated, a surf board, or canoe we could use for the “armature”. What showed up was something quite remarkable. Being…

“Ah-Ha” Moment of Truth

Sand Stains

I spoke about noticing patterns. This morning as I was heading back to the landing area I stopped to pick up yet another butt. It rained last night and I’m guessing these butts were from yesterday afternoon. They were Marlboros, the kind with the medium brown color paper filter with a slightly speckled pattern. What I…

The Pen

After starting the butt container I decided to use some of the space on the label to keep track of dates and the number of butts were added to the collection. Now I had one more item I needed to remember to take with me in the morning… a pen. This became problematic, as it…

The Jar

It’s not every sunrise that I go out on the beach, though it’s an easy walk down the hallway to the elevator, out a few security doors, then there’s the gate to the beach and a landing where I take off my flip flops and put them in one of the bins that typically hold…

Trash to Treasure

Trash to Treasure (T2T), our local creative reuse center, recently closed its doors. A loss for the community for sure. A little more than a year ago, I was asked if I would like to be involved in a public art project to highlight recycling. I had been a member of the center and promoting it…
