These are some amazing Fish Sculptures from Trash. I can’t believe the creativeness of the below artists. I might have to start keeping some of the trash I throw away. Since May 13, 2013, I have donated beach trash to various charities and fundraisers: 17 shorts, 20 kitchen items, 250 socks, 13 sunglasses, 12 sweatpants, 90 Tees, 1 Thermos, 149 Towels, 1,239 Beach Toys, 1 umbrella, 22 Underwear, 2 Water Bottles. I pick up an average of 50 bottle caps/day. In the last 10 days have collected over 300 plastic bottles, 100 glass bottles and about the same aluminum cans. Add in 3 packpacks, 5 cell phones, 4 purses, 7 footballs, 2 basketballs, 3 bathing suites, 3 blankets, 7 sheets, 2 bras, 8 fins, 226 pairs of shoes, over 500 unpaired shoes, none of that includes broken toys, kites, tents, pillows, silverware, plates, dresses, hats, jackets, jewelry, pacifiers, and countless bags of ‘rags’. This is in 1/2 miles of beach, tide to towel line.

This trash fish was made out of waste found in the river running through Gwynns Falls Park in Baltimore, MD. This project was part of the annual Art on Gwynns Falls Trails exhibition and exemplifies that raising awareness about river pollutio.
