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.
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.
