One man’s trash, is another woman’s treasure. Washed Ashore has an important mission: To build and exhibit aesthetically powerful art to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in oceans and waterways and spark positive changes in consumer habits. The organization was founded by Angela Haseltine Pozzi, an artist and teacher from Oregon. Since the project began in 2010, thousands of pounds of trash have been removed from beaches. That trash was then processed into more than 70 works of art, which now travel the country to raise awareness about the plight of the world’s oceans and marine life. It is amazing to see how marine debris, which causes such irreparable damage to our oceans, can be turned into objects of beauty. Eleven of the larger-than-life sculptures are currently at Naples Zoo through Apr. 21; WashedAshore.org.
