MANGROOVE IN NYC
FOR THE MANGROVES
Mangrooooove! On April 29, Project 0 Director Alexandra Richards' beautiful artwork of a mangrove tree brought us all together to celebrate the mighty mangrove to benefit these life sustaining trees in the Caribbean. Hosted by the gorgeous new Paradise Club at the Times Square EDITION, a spectacular time was had by all, dancing to the music provided by DJ Chloe Caillet and Isaac Ferry, with Shelton Lindsay masterfully emcee'ing the evening dressed as a mangrove tree and performances by the Magical Mermaids of the Mangroves. Huge thanks to Ben Pundole and Ian Schrager and the amazing team at EDITION. We're super grateful to Knowlita and Out East Rosé for their passion for ocean conservation and bringing us together to produce Alexandra's design on a beautiful shirt. And to all the beauties that came to Mangroove the night away, thank you thank you!

THE REUSABLES HAVE ARRIVED!
PASS ON PLASTIC POP UP
On November 7th we launched our Pass on Plastic range of products with a limited edition line of products featuring designs by Ronnie Wood, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Princess Eugenie of York, Bob Geldof, Sienna Miller, Will Poulter, Harry Kane, Rita Ora and Fearne Cotton to help people reduce their plastic footprints. Designed by Matt Smith at Shed Design London, the shop features a total wrap in a confetti-like pattern inside and out. On closer inspection, one can see that sadly the confetti is plastic, mimicking the mess that exists in the ocean. Project 0 is incredibly grateful to all the designers who have given generously of their time and talents, as well as our board, ambassadors and friends who have appeared in social media content and helped to spread the good word, and always show up at launches and shindigs. We're also grateful to Shaftesbury for providing us with the pop up shop, Fran Cutler and her team for their hard work and party expertise, Ciroq for the delicious vodka, Life Water for keeping us hydrated in beautiful cans, and to Josh Ludlow for providing music for the shop launch.
Our partners EDITION hotels graciously hosted the after party in the Punch Room, which was transformed into a pirates lair, which was brought to life by sublime tunes by Aimee Philips and Jack Guinness. Huge thanks to Caroline and everyone at The London EDITION.
And of course, huge thanks to the team at Sky Ocean Rescue who we have partnered with on this journey, are absolutely committed to cleaning up the mess in the ocean.
Enjoy some pictures!
Pass On Plastic Experience
in the Heart of Carnaby
Project 0 is thrilled to announce its partnership with Sky Ocean Rescue to inspire people to join the movement to #PassOnPlastic to stop the ocean from drowning in Plastic. We launched our partnership with a pop up shop in the heart of London's Carnaby, which was generously donated by Shaftesbury. The shop featured windows designed by Luke Nash at Luke Nash Designs with Serena Mattar of Saucy Cow, with each window featuring one of the top 5 single-use plastic offenders: water bottles, coffee cups, utensils, straws and bags. Kristjana Williams provided a beautiful design that was featured on another window, and two others featured CGI fish eyes with the words "Plastic Kills But Never Dies." Artists Kristjana Williams, Paul Karslake and Tess Felix created incredible pieces that were featured throughout the shop. And we are so honored that one of the world's top jewelers, the incredible Ara Vartanian create two shark rings for sale. We celebrated our three weeks at 20 Beak Street with a lot of surprise DJs - from La Roux and Hugo Heathcote on opening night to Raff Law, Jimmy Jagger, Bailey Beats, Mickey Beans; while on the road with the Rolling Stones, Bernard Fowler came by with Darryl Jones and signed his album The Bura. It was an incredible few weeks. Huge thanks to everyone that came in to #PassOnPlastic Together we can really make an enormous difference!

Project 0 launched a sustainable line of tee shirts customized by renowned artists, designers, and friends with 100% of profits from sales going to restore mangroves in the Caribbean. A great group gathered at The London Edition, swayed to the tunes throughout the night and viewed the Salt-T's on display, featuring artwork by Alice Temperley, Vivienne Westwood, Fearne Cotton, Pixie Geldof, Ronnie Wood, Justin Hager/Munchies, Tracey Emin, Itchy Scratchy Patchy, Queeny, Holly St. Clair, Poppy Delevingne, Jo Wood, and Lily Donaldson. Huge thanks to Belvedere the themed cocktails, and to Hugo Heathcote, and Chloe Caillet for keeping the crowd dancing. Special thanks goes to Project 0 Ambassador Bethany Harper-Walsh for the original idea for the tee-shirt line, and to Lucy Wright for the help and for being the best sea weed in the sea.

"UNDOING IT TOGETHER"
DINNER SALON AT NEW YORK EDITION
Project 0 and EDITION Hotels have partnered to raise awareness and funds to put 30% of the ocean under protection by 2030, and inspire positive behavior change. On September 10, we celebrated our newest Project 0 ambassadors, Derek Blasberg and Queeny, and our global partnership with a vegan dinner at New York EDITION's ClockTower restaurant. Chelsea Leyland filled in for former US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, who was grounded in Florida by Hurricane Irma, and board members Jeremy Lindblad and Tyrone Wood said a few words on behalf of Project 0. Thanks to all who came out for a really special evening.
Wave sculptures inspired by the ocean were created by fifty of the world’s most influential artists and culture-makers and displayed throughout New York City from May 20-June 21. These stunning works of art on wave sculptures transmitted the artists' personal joy, hope, and inspiration for the ocean and were sold at a live auction at Sotheby's on June 21, and via Paddle8 through June 23. Net proceeds from the auction will benefit a chain of marine protected areas in the Azores, mangrove restoration in the East Caribbean, and help to fund a sustainability study in the East China Sea. Thanks to all the incredible artists for the beautiful artwork, to La Mer for sponsoring the Wave Walk, and to everyone who bid and went to see the Waves in New York City.
