Every day, we use plastic products. And where does these items go when we are done with them? Too many end up in the ocean. Enter artist Angela Haseltine Pozzi, the founder of Washed Ashore. With the help of volunteers, she collects ocean trash and uses it to construct sculptures of ocean wildlife. The sculptures go on display to educate people about the effects of trash in our oceans. Author and photographer Kelly Crull highlights this phenomenal work, featuring fourteen sculptures. Each sculpture is accompanied by information about the animal as well as tips for how to reduce your plastic use.

“Scavenger Hunt,” with plastic collecting tips. “Building the Sculptures.” Suggestions to build your own sculpture. “Where Do Plastic Bottles Go?” Glossary. Suggested resources. Full-color photographs.
