a Collective Perspective on the Pollution of our Waterways
In an attempt to address the effects of water pollution, Ships of the Sea and twelve Savannah artists have joined together to create the exhibit "Making Waves."
Through the use of artistic works depicting the damaging consequences of water pollution we hope to encourage individuals to make small changes which will have a large impact on the health of our local and global waterways.
Participating artists at Ships of the Sea are:
JESSICA BENNETT TRUEX
Ships of the Sea will be posting a companion website for this exhibit with relevant information, resources, and solutions for the residents of this area.

MAKING WAVES: SAVANNAH
Help keep our community and water ways litter free and provide valuable information utilized to create sustainable solutions through the "Litterati"app. Available for free at the App Store and through Google Play, "Litterati" places geo-tags on your photographs of litter to help map and identify problem areas. Once you download the app please join our "Litterati" group MAKING WAVES: SAVANNAH to be a part of our initiative to address this important issue.
"[Using Litterati] a group of 5th graders picked over 1,2000 pieces of litter in their schoolyard, noticing that the most common type of litter was the plastic straw wrappers from their own cafeteria, which led to the school eliminating the straws at the request of the students.” –CNN
