Ocean Trash to Art: Couple Creates Art from Tons of Plastic Pollution Found on California Beach (video)

Posted By on November 6, 2011

Artwork is being made from tons of plastic pollution found on Kehoe Beach in California. Plastic in and of itself itsn't evil, however, unfathomable amounts of single-use plastic pieces that are thrown away as garbage are finding their way into our oceans, polluting them

 

Fascinating and thought-provoking, the short documentary below is about Richard and Judith Lang’s endeavors to create art pieces made from tons of plastic trash they’ve found that have washed up on one California beach.

Some of the pieces of plastic that the Langs have found date back to the 1950s and from many other countries.

Summary from Karmatube:

A commitment that began on their first date, Richard and Judith Lang have been collecting plastic debris from Kehoe Beach in Point Reyes National Seashore in California, for over ten years. They use these plastic articles to make beautiful works of art, not just as an exhibition of their talents, but to draw attention to the deeper concern of plastic pollution of the world’s oceans.
