Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

"The theme of my mural was plastic pollution, which is a huge concern to me, so I tried to convey the message in a fun colorful way, so people will enjoy the image and then absorb the message. The giant Squid is ridding the sea of plastic, and the surfer and seal are stoked and are supporting him because the ocean is important to everyone!"

The Focus

Plastic pollution

Take Action

Reduce your own plastic footprint by

  • Using a reusable water bottle and avoiding drinks bottled in plastic
  • Bringing your own bag, cup, utensils, straw, etc.
  • Shopping in bulk, reducing packaging waste
  • Choosing reusable and compostable goods over less sustainable materials
