People’s Choice Award

If you want to show your support for the art and benefit the Northcoast Environmental Center’s Coastal Programs you can visit and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award from July 19-31.

Craft for the Coast strives to bring awareness to marine debris issues and give litter a new life! By doing beach cleans and making upcycled art we can prevent trash from going into our oceans and landfills. To take it a step further, we embrace the idea that art is activism and has the power to influence policy and change the way we deal with marine debris as a community.
