Enter to WIN a ‘plastic’ scarf & a stay with us!
In honour of World Oceans Day 2018, we invite you to celebrate our neighbour and closest friend, the Atlantic Ocean!
Featuring a neighbouring beach, Rissers Beach, ‘Seacoast Bound’ is one of 15 scarf designs created by InFocus Canada with photographers across Canada in 2017. Only 100 of each of the scarves were made available and we have one to give away within this prize package. Proceeds from the sale of this scarf supported the Nova Scotia Nature Trust.
World Oceans Day 2018 is meant to invite us to all think about preventing the use of plastics, while we continue to minimize the use of plastics here at White Point, including the replacement of plastic straws with paper ones, we couldn’t think of a better way to draw your attention to unique ‘upcycling’ partnerships like this by InFocus Canada and our Nova Scotia entry in their program featuring one of our very own artists included within our Gift Shop here at White Point.
ABOUT KAS STONE and this incredible scarf:
Size: 195cm x 100cm
The location of this image is Rissers Beach, Lunenburg County NS.
“The title of this photograph comes from the lyrics of a popular folk song: “Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast…” and refers to the geographic and cultural reality of a province that is nearly surrounded by the sea. I live just a few minutes down the road from one of Nova Scotia’s popular seaside destinations, Rissers Beach, and I walk there every day, not only in summertime when the beach is a gentle, happy place, but also in winter when it is pummeled by fierce North Atlantic storms — my favourite time, which is when this photograph was made.”
The scarves are produced from 100% recycled plastic and diverts 3 bottles from the waste stream. Only 100 scarves have been produced in this print. All scarves are developed and manufactured employing the highest ethical production standards.
10% of the sale price of Kas’s scarves is donated to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust.
In an interview with Vernon Oickle in the South Shore Breaker, Kas said “it was a great honour to be invited to represent Nova Scotia in the nationwide InFocus Canada project that celebrates the country’s natural heritage and raises awareness and funds for some important charities.” Adding “it takes three bottles to make one scarf, which, feels remarkably like cotton or linen. I was actually thinking that would be hard or scratchy but surprisingly, it’s very soft considering what it’s made from,” she says. “They are very lightweight.”
Happy World Oceans Day!
