“After learning about litter, global warming, and invasive species last year, I realized that our ignorance has become a huge problem, and I knew I had to do something. I just didn’t know what. When my teacher told me about Bow Seat, I had my answer. It was a way for me to express my concern and send a message to people about ocean pollution in a creative way. We only have one Earth, and it is our job to take good care of it.”
