World Oceans Day seeks to inform the public about the impact of human activity on the ocean. In the past 30 years, more than 20 million bottle caps have been collected during beach cleaning activities. These caps degrade very slowly and are a danger to sea life who mistake them for food. Whitepine Studios offers workshops for young children that transform them into socially engaged artists. They learn the importance of conservation and use recycled materials to create unique works of art.
