13 Giant Sculptures Made Entirely Of Beach Waste To Make You Reconsider Plastic Use

Let these amazing yet disturbing sculptures serve us as a reminder of society’s overuse of plastics. All of them were created using plastic materials found in sea or on shore, discarded plastics which we call beach waste.

Big bravo to Washed Ashore, an Oregon-based organization, which created most of the listed sculptures and to Xandi Kreuzeder for making “Tiger Shark” and “Roxy Mermaid”. However, this is not a thank-you post, it is more of a what-have-we-done post.

Very creative, amazing that someone can take something so negative and make something so positive from it. God bless the artist(s) and all the helpers who gathered, sorted, and cleaned the trash to make it into art.

Recycled sculptures to remind us we should recycle our wastes. Pretty good, actually.
