On August 4th, Random Acts of Creativity (RAC Lifestyle) hosted a cocktail party and shopping event to benefit Oceanic Global. The event took place as part of RAC’s summer pop-up at Destination Haus in Amagansett, NY.
RAC and Destination Haus curated a beautiful collection of clothing, art, and accessories rooted in sustainability. Multimedia artists also displayed ocean-related work on-site. Amongst the featured artists were Scott Bluedorn who shared his sculptures of whales made from plastic ocean debris, and Laureen Vellante who showcased her beautiful ocean photography.
Co-host, Sarah Michler, also shared her documentary from the recent all-female plastic eXXpedition to the North Pacific Gyre. eXXpedition is a series of all-women sailing voyages to make the unseen seen, from the toxins in our bodies to the plastic toxins in our seas. In July 2018, a multidisciplinary crew of 14 international women spent a month sailing in the North Pacific from Hawaii > Vancouver > Seattle. The 3,000 nautical miles took them through the densest ocean plastic accumulation zone on the planet as well as along coastlines that suffer from intense plastic pollution.
Oceanic Global additionally displayed our signature augmented reality experiences, allowing guests to learn about the current state of our ocean through artistic and interactive means.
