New Exhibit Turns Polluted Beaches Into Art

IMG_3392-2 Treehugger 10.18.10

From fish to birds and beyond, countless animals die each day from ingesting beach and ocean-bound plastic.

In an effort to raise awareness of this issue, volunteers from the Artula Institute are collecting beach trash, and fashioning it into giant sculptures of birds, fish, and whale bones.

 

Read the whole Treehugger Article, check out the Washed Ashore project website, and take a look at Chris Jordan's photography, which one of the project's organizers cited as an inspiration.
