Do you or someone you know always seem to be doing the right thing. Taking care of our waterways, picking up trash at your local beach, working on restocking, or restoring our waterfront environment? Then let Cory Redwine know about it and you or they might be a winner of some of the best cleaning supplies on the planet. There are two ways you can nominate someone.

First, who is Cory Redwine and why does she get to select a winner?

Cory Redwine, the artist, is a Florida native who loves the beaches and waterways for many reasons.  Fishing, boating, paddle boarding, exploring and great family fun and relaxation are just a few of the reasons Cory likes being on or around the water.  

Of course the currents and winds deposit litter from the ocean/river as a constant reminder of man’s detrimental plastic pollution in the ocean.  She started picking up litter with the desire to eliminate the garbage on the beach.

But now picking up the un-ending procession of litter and bits and pieces of plastic has become a passion of its own. Though frustrating at times, seeing so much trash appear time and time again, Cory found a way to channel this endless task into a more exciting activity; like a scavenger hunt on the beach.

Cory said, “I began to gather the more colorful bits of trash and the unique objects cast upon the sand by the waves and wind. I hated to just fill up the landfill with it as well, so I began to ponder what purpose I could give to this quantity of materials I was collecting.

My husband is an accomplished artist, so I began to create works of art using a collage of color and texture that comes from the many bits I’ve collected and scrubbed clean.
