2021-03-16Child's fabric face mask with a Batman print. This was found near Tempe Beach Park. I picked it up and brought it home as it was in pretty good condition. First, I'm soaking it in vinegar and then I'll wash for my 2yo to use.
2020-08-09During Covid-19 it is very important for us to recycle the mask that we use. There has been a drastic increase of the use of mask since the pandemic, which can cause environment problems if they are not disposed correctly. Buying mask that can be washed and reused would be ideal, but if that is not possible, the least we can do is recycle. Although it may seem like a small task, we can help the world stay clean by recycling your mask after using.
2020-05-28I was working as a dancer on the Cruise Ship MS Zaandam when the Covid-19 Pandemic hit. Countries began to close their borders and passengers and crew began presenting with flu-like symptoms. The entire ship went into lockdown to prevent the spread of this illness which was later confirmed to be Covid-19. We were denied entry to Chile, Peru and the Panama Canal. At this time we had 4 deaths onboard. The MS Rotterdam came to our aid with medical staff, test kits and supplies. Eventually we were granted entry through the Panama Canal to disembark passengers and sick crew in Florida. The ship then left port and sailed to the Bahamas were all crew had to undergo a 14 day CDC ordered quarantine. Repatriation plans were made and I was transferred to the Nieuw Statendam and sailed across the Atlantic to disembark in Rotterdam on May 13th. This ended up being a total of 60 days stranded at sea. After flying home to Perth I faced another 14 days away from family in mandatory Hotel Isolation . We were delivered meals 3 times a day that came in paper bags and other biodegradable containers. I wanted to do something creative and a little bit quirky to pass the time. This packaging became my inspiration to create a range of outfits constructed from these recycled materials. I posted a video of these creations and it went viral on Facebook. I have kept these costumes as memorabilia.
05/18/2020My roommate took this photo on her daily walk, something she started doing early on in quarantine to stay active while staying safe. It asks for people to recycle their plastic water bottles so that they can be made into face shields for our health care workers. Health workers are facing a lack of PPE and individuals have started making face masks for them to use. *Anjelica Oswald, Northeastern University
