Plastic pollution in the ocean has become so pervasive that it is expected to outweigh all fish in the sea by 2050. No part of the world is left untouched by this epidemic and there are pioneers everywhere trying to do something about the 6 billion metric tons of plastic that is not recycled. Craig Leeson, with his documentary 'A Plastic Ocean', hit the Netflix watching world with a wake up call to our plastic problem. Ecodream of Puebla Mexico is building entire homes completely out of plastic for under 300$. My aim with Tin Wolf is to pioneer a way to encourage people to recycle while creating a paradigm shift away from the use of plastic. I create art pieces that send a message, utilizing recycled aluminum cans, wood and bottle caps that were either donated by people who support the cause or thrown out by people who do not recycle. Humanity owes Mother Earth an immense debt of gratitude, this is my payment.
