YOUNG Ocean Barker from Point Arkwright is a crafty green thumb and environmentalist and has recently screen printed a series of calico bags which are to be used for people to pick up rubbish whilst at the beach.
Ocean who was gifted the bags from Coolum and North Shore Coast Care (CNSCC) decided to screen print the bags and sell them with all money to be given back to Coast Care. Ocean also collects waste most days from the beach and thought it would be a good idea to make a reusable bag for others to use to pick up rubbish with.
When asked why the waste bags were needed, Ocean said it was for the turtles.
The lino-printed calico bags are available to buy for a small amount at Wagtail Coffee at Yaroomba, The Boardroom in Coolum and Studio 53 Art & Surf Culture out in Quanda Estate.
