Entry Description

The main purpose of purchasing a SIGG bottle is because you can refill it rather than having to recycle it or throw it away. In the North Pacific Gyre there is 6 times more plastic particles in the ocean than plankton. All the seafood we eat will start eating this and eventually it will make it back to us humans. I created animals out of plastic bottles specifically to exaggerate what our seafood might look like if we don’t start taking action.

About Designer

Hi, my name is Derek Heinze and I love to imagine, create, and inspire. I live in Dallas, Texas and I'm an Art Direction major at Texas A&M- Commerce. If I'm not at work or school, you'll always find me spending time with family and friends, traveling, and exploring as many new things as possible. I figure if I'm happy in life then my art will reflect that. I hope to one day be able to completely immerse myself into the art world. Everyday I learn how much more I love to create and its calling to me to use it to help others in need all around the world. I don't have it all figured out but I guess it's all a part of growing up. If anything, I have learned that being positive and persistent will get you further than you could ever imagine. Let's see where it takes us. Cheers : )
