Recycle artist Roberto Tjon a Meeuw first visited Villa Being in Tobago for his honeymoon 11 years ago. 

Last weekend he returned to the exclusive Arnos Vale villa but as one of the featured artists at Leve, an annual event aimed at showcasing Caribbean talent and promoting sustainable living.

Born in Suriname but now resident in Curacao, Tjon a Meeuw hosted a workshop for Tobago secondary students at the Speyside Beach Facilities while on the island. 

He sat down with us to talk about his work and how he is using his art to teach us about the need to save the environment.
