My Contribution

I recently discovered that a group of people, mostly women, are building a hyperbolic crochet coral reef. They said anyone from around the world is welcome to participate, so I'm making a piece. I was absolutely horrified to learn of the "Trash Vortex" in the Pacific Ocean also. This project is to raise awareness of the ever growing plastic garbage problem and Global Warming which is threatening the world's coral well as other life forms.

I've made this piece from plastic shopping bags cut into strips and crocheted together using a simple 'single crochet' stitch. There are links in my sidebar which have more info on this project.

I was inspired by THIS (click here)
