Earth Day 2018 with Artist Coleen Tyler

Artist Coleen Tyler helped families with grade school children assemble a window wave from single use plastic bags at a library environmental workshop. The recycled art work they created, inspired by Japanese Artist Hokusai, is on display in the Children’s Room. Many plastic bags are swept into our rivers and oceans and often end up in the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch, which is made up of 80% plastic bottles, bags, and other products. The community worked together to spread awareness of this environmental danger. Check out our Big Wave in the Children’s Room and borrow The Plastic Ocean, an environmental film available at the library.
