And you’d better believe we got amazing people like Craig Leeson (Director of award-winning film ‘A Plastic Ocean’), Ken Hickson (who’s been fighting the green fight for over 50 years) and Jill Robinson (Founder of Animals Asia) and covered them in literal trash- we’re making a statement, and it’s one you’re going to want to hear (and see) for yourself. Also, if you pop by the exhibition, you’ll get the chance to be part of our Mini Green Warriors Photobooth- so you can show all your friends that you’ve joined the green fight, too.
