This Man Creates Art Out Of Trash He Finds On The Shore To Show How People Contaminate The Ocean (22 pics)

That’s what Rob Arnold found while visiting the usually beautiful Tregantle beach

A blanket of microplastics covering the shoreline

So Rob and a group of volunteers started cleaning…

And in one day they managed to scavenge 35 bags of trash

“I am fairly used to it as I have been doing it for four years, but the way it was this time was a shock to me, it was desperate”

Among the trash, Rob found all kinds of stuff, most of which was plastic

Like a battalion of toy soldiers

And a collection of LEGO diving flippers

All of which get a new life in Rob’s hands, who is also a local artist on the side

Who turns the trash found on the beaches into artistic sculptures

Which are now being exposed in the Plastic Age exposition at Liskeard Museum

how *beep* child toy gets into ocean in massive amounts?
consumer doesn't dump plastic into ocean - it's clearly 100% garbage disposal companies fault who use ocean as landfill.
