Paper-Roses – Postcard Fundraiser

With these uncertain times upon us now, we can choose to slow down, reconnect and take on the things that really matter. Making time for the little things like the old-school joy of sending a hand-written note to a friend. Now you can send your love and share your dreams in aid of Plastic Free Seas on a Paper-Roses for Plastic Free Seas postcard.

Paper-Roses is all about timeless simplicity and sharing beautiful, sustainable art.

For 2020, Penny, the founder and artist at Paper-Roses has produced three stunning and poignant pieces of art which highlight the effects of the plastic pollution crisis on our local marine species.

These have been turned into postcards that highlight the simple acts we can all undertake to reduce our reliance on single use plastics and have a big impact on our plastic-polluted waters.

Paper-Roses is donating a portion of the sale of each set of these limited edition postcards, which are printed on luxurious 100% post-consumer recycled paper, to Plastic Free Seas.

About the artist - Penny Creedon

Artist, Penny Creedon, is a nature lover. She was lucky enough to grow up in the English countryside and now lives in Hong Kong. One of the things she likes most about living in this vibrant and exciting city? The fact that it’s so easy to get out from between the skyscrapers and into nature, whether it’s into the rainforests or out onto the water.

Penny wanted to create the artwork for Plastic Free Seas because of the undeniable impact that pollution and our over reliance on single use plastics is having on our surroundings. While updated regulations are likely to be a factor in helping to end this, education is vital to bring about the changes in attitude needed to break our bad plastic habits. Penny freely admits that she is not perfect and knows that we can all make changes to the way we think about and use plastic. The education programme that Plastic Free Seas has put in place, and the passion and perseverance they have in delivering the message, will empower this change.
