What inspired you to take part in our Artist Collaboration Program?
I was already a supporting Pela community member and loved the idea that I could be a part of a great cause.
Tell us about your level of environmental practices in your home, community etc?
Separating my household waste into three separate recycling bins and making sure my other housemates do so as well. I also created a 12 page magazine which was displayed in an exhibition myself and a few other students curated to try to influence others on 'How To Live With Less Plastic.'
Why do you think it's important to be environmentally friendly today?
I feel the environmental issues are the biggest issues our generation will face.
