Mermaid Trash Mission
My name is Lauren MacLeod and I was born and raised in Broward county, FL. I've spent my whole life on the beach, and have a profound love of the sea. In living so close to the beach, I've come to witness first hand the changes caused by pollution and my goal is to transition the way society handles waste in the Ocean, as well as promote Ocean conservation around the world!
Here at Mermaid Trash, I create unique Ocean inspired resin art and jewelry from recycled plastics collected on cleanups as well as reclaimed wood and other items. It is my hope to change the way people think about plastic pollution by using the proceeds to fund more initiatives and Ocean cleanups.
Every purchase from Mermaid Trash is a way to give back to the Ocean we all love so much, and that does so much for us.
Mermaid Trash also promotes the education of art and environmentalism within the local community and on social media.
We only have this one planet to live on, so preserving its beauty and function for the next generations is the ultimate goal.
Mermaid Trash donates every month!
I now donate monthly to 3 Ocean conservation groups and support various initiatives throughout the year like, Strawless Summer, loggerhead turtle watch, and many more!
Every month, proceeds from Mermaid Trash go 4Ocean, Florida Springs Council, and the Ocean conservancy organization.
