Guy Collected 35 Bags Of Trash From Beach, Turned It Into Amazing Art.
It's summer, which means it's that time of the year to hit up all your favorite beaches and bask in the sun. It's a time to lounge around in the sand and dip your toes into the cold ocean. But what do you do when the beach you visit is filled with garbage?
Plastic pollution is a growing issue around the world. When plastic is not properly recycled, it can easily end up in the ocean and later wash up on beach shores.
Activist Rob Arnold was majorly disappointed with the amount of trash he found at Tregantle Beach. Instead of picking it up and recycling it, however, he decided to turn all the plastic he found into works of art.
Plastic has undoubtedly been popping up everywhere lately.
Unfortunately, that means it's been showing up in areas it shouldn't be. Plastic easily migrates from landfills to the ocean all the time.
One particular activist has decided to create art out of the pollution.
Instead of throwing away what he scavenges, he raises awareness about Earth's plastic problem by making art out of what he finds.
In April, Rob Arnold from the Rame Peninsula Beach Care team took a stroll on the Tregantle Beach, UK.
He was devastated when he noticed the enormous amount of microplastic that surfaced on the beach.
Arnold couldn't believe his eyes. An area where he expected to see beautiful scenery was littered with trash.
After his stroll, Arnold decided to gather up a few other volunteers to help collect all the rubbish.
As a member of the beach care team, Arnold looks after all the beaches around the Rame Peninsula Bay.
He's actually used to seeing garbage wash up on the shores. The amount that washed up on Tregantle Beach "shocked and saddened" him.
