To help launch Plastic Free Kailua, we are in search of the perfect logo art to put on our website, educational documents, and importantly, on our reusable bags and water bottles. The reusable products will be available for sale at certified Plastic Free Kailua merchants designated with a logo decal. While exploring the topic of plastic pollution and marine debris, we encourage you to think about solutions and alternatives to single-use plastics such as recycling programs, carrying reusable bags to the grocery, carrying a reusable water bottle filled with tap water, or attending a beach clean-up. Reusable bags, bottles, and lunch boxes are a great way to GO GREEN!

Submissions for the art contest for Plastic Free Kailua should reflect the iconic, natural beauty and/or environment of Kailua, such as the beaches, water sports, the Mokulua Islands, your neighborhood parks or gardens as well as practices that visualize what it means to be plastic free. Use paint, crayons, pastels, fabric, collage, or mixed media to put your vision on paper. The possibilities are endless!

Visit our LEARN page for valuable links and resources to share with keiki.
