The Beginning of a Difference
2020, Junior, Art
Watching my grandmother do one simple thing every day has always inspired me, and creating this drawing makes me hope that people will start taking care of our blue planet and the beautiful life within after seeing this work of art. Every day, dinners are concluded with scraps of leftover food, but we do not realize that all these scraps can really make a difference in our environment. My grandmother collects what people would regularly throw into the trash and composts our fruit and vegetable peels, crushed eggshells, coffee grounds, used paper towels, and more. I demonstrated this by representing compostable items as animals in the ocean and showing someone like my grandmother trying to make a difference.
