I have been working hard on a sculpture for the “Spirited Arts” competition at school. As everyone knows, I am really into looking after our planet and all the beautiful things in it. Here is my entry (and an explanation to go with it…)
For my sculpture I have been inspired by David Attenborough, as he shows how plastic has a negative impact on the ocean, through “Blue Planet 2”. This made me think how I could make a sculpture using rubbish that is killing the sea and the creatures that make it their home. I wanted to make deadly rubbish into beautiful art, which shows what happens to our environment when we carelessly throw away plastic. To me, this sculpture represents stewardship, which means looking after the world God gave us.
Right now, one of the most critical problems facing our oceans is plastic waste and so we should reduce the use of plastic in our daily life. Today, our world has never been more in danger. We all contribute to the rubbish piling up in our seas and we all have the ability to stop it through the small choices we make.
It all starts with me; it all starts with you.
