I’m totally all for meeting new mutuals and best friends here, but seriously what the actually fuck. They’re always all so pretty and I’m just here being literal trash to the point I’m so intimidated and regret meeting them so they won’t have to see my face. @dank-kpop@seung-seoul
A group of high school students in
Sicily invented a vending machine that
turns trash into phone cases. The
machine grinds plastic bottles into
pellets, which are melted down to be
reused by a 3D printer that creates a
variety of phone cases and encourages
students to recycle more. SourceSource 2
Look closely. These sculptures are made entirely from garbage found along the beach.
A traveling art exhibit by Angela Haseltine Pozzi, now at our National Zoo, educates visitors about one of the biggest enemies to the ocean today: trash.
Pozzi and her volunteers with the Washed Ashore Project collected discarded plastic from beaches on the West Coast, which she transformed into beautiful sculptures that tell an ugly story. The 17 larger-than-life pieces represent the more than 315 billion pounds of plastic in our oceans today.
“Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea” will be at the Zoo through Sept. 5.
