When Meredith Andrews moved home to Bermuda after years of living in Europe, she began taking regular walks on the beach – and started picking up plastics along the way.
Her artist’s eye saw potential in the found items, and she used them to create colorful collages, which she photographs for prints and to share on social media.
“I’ve always been a sustainability-minded person,” Andrews says. “But as I’ve created these pieces, I’ve become hyperaware that globally we’re in the middle of an epidemic addiction to plastic.”
Sharing a message of sustainability
Argo Group shares Andrews’ commitment to sustainability and recently sponsored a beach cleanup in Bermuda. Andrews used the plastics collected during the cleanup to create a new piece of mosaic-style art.
