BANGKOK — A schoolboy fashion icon will join an eco-fashion show which along with an art exhibition and other activities are aimed at protecting marine life from plastic pollution.

At Heart for the Ocean, wander through the Blue Ocean, an art installation made from plastic waste collected from households and local beaches, and meet the teen fashion phenomenon Apichet “Madaew” Atirattana, who will showcase his recycled plastic costumes for the Ocean Haute Couture fashion show.

Learn how to transform old tees into trendy tote bags at a workshop while acoustic-indie act Stoondio, The Voice Thailand’s heartthrob Nuttawut “Max” Jenmana and others will perform live with musical instruments made from recycled waste.

Panel discussions include Thitinant Sristhita, an author who’s dedicated herself to reducing plastic consumption for over a decade, eco-artist Prasopsuk “Pom” Lerdviriyapiti and activists from Greenpeace and Trash Hero, an eco-projects group focused on waste reduction with chapters throughout Southeast Asia.

The event, organized by Greenpeace, runs Feb. 14 through Feb. 19 on the first floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
