It’s crafty. It’s handmade. It’s eco-chic – and it’s inspiring! What is it? It’s a 12-foot-long coral reef. Resting at the Aquarium of the Pacific, here in Long Beach, this coral reef motivates the community to be aware of how delicate a living animal really is!
More than 90 Anthropologie stores across the country recently participated in an Earth Day campaign that had store associates, customers and their children painting, sculpting, gluing, ripping, piling and shredding recyclable material to form these beautiful and creative coral reefs. Items such as plastic, wax, paper, styrofoam, tubes and bubble wrap were used to show the problems we have with keeping our oceans clean and how everyday items considered to be trash can be turned into treasure!
The exhibit will last through next weekend upstairs on the top landing in front of the tropical pacific waters. Be sure to stop by and take a look at this stunning and inspiring creation as you tour the aquarium and learn how we can keep our ocean waters clean and beautiful!
