Aloha! I’m blogging from Santa Cruz, California today, where Rich Owen is holding a meeting at the restaurant CHOCOLATE where a group of ten people are discussing ways to create funding, resourcing and publicity for the Gyre Cleanup Project. Some of you who may have been following my blog during the 2007 Harmony Festival, where Rich did the very first Gyre Cleanup Art Project to draw public awareness to the huge, Texas-sized waste dump in the Pacific Ocean.
Rich is passionate about “doing something” about this completely ludicrous situation we’ve gotten ourselves into. His philosophy :: It’s our mess, let’s clean it up! I agree!
