WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) -

An artist who uses recyclables to create his pieces is asking you to stop using non-reusable plastic for a day.

It’s part of the first annual Ocean Detox Day.

Jazz Undy, from Jazzy Boy Art Co., is holding a beach party at 22 North Lumina at Wrightsville Beach. The party is to celebrate our oceans and challenge you to remain plastic free for one day.

Organizers filled a parking lot with sand, beach chairs and artwork. There will also be live music.

The event will be Thursday, October 8, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
