Virtual museum whose mission is litter-prevention by ARTiculating litter with humor, art and kindness. Kind of like Greenpeace meets the Dalai Lama. Museum's Goal is to go out of business because there's no more litter to showcase. Litter-art sales fund awareness, education & events.
This is the second iPhone we've found on a Fort Lauderdale area beach this week. (I think we are meant to have iPhones -- we keep 'calling' them to us!)
This one was found on the beach in Lauderdale by the Sea, FL 33308, which is just north of Galt Ocean Mile. It was buried in the sand, between Palm and Hibiscus portals. I am trying to track down owner. Seems they might be visiting from MO. If you know someone who recently lost their iPhone on the beach have them contact me at:
Cigarette Butt Litter Donation, Dec. 7, Fort Lauderdale, FL
The woman in the yellow convertible was spotted pitching a cigarette butt from her car while waiting in traffic for the bridge to go down. This occurred Monday, December 7 around 4:30 in the afternoon on Commercial Boulevard, just east of the Intracoastal Bridge.
Here's a sweet sign we saw on the fence of a home facing Fort Lauderdale beach. We thought who ever lived here must be pretty cool as it's a proactive, friendly, upbeat request to would-be litterers. Turns out he IS cool... he's our friend Ken Fisher.
Ran into Ken yesterday at lunch. As we were catching up, I told him about the new Museum of Litter. I had no idea Ken felt strongly about litter until he mentioned the sign on his fence. "Wait a minute," I said, accurately describing the location, "I just took a picture of your sign on Saturday. We've been admiring the creator of this sign for a while. I can't believe it turns out to be someone we know...you!" Small world, literally.
After lunch, Ken stopped by the shop to see the art we've been creating from litter. He loved it and bought four pieces!
Thanks Ken. Thanks for your own creative litter-prevention initiative, for "getting" what we're trying to do and for giving the museum your support.
