We hear about the garbage polluting our environment all the time, but seeing it can sometimes bring the message home. That's the idea behind these beautiful works of art made from trash found in the ocean. Check out more images at Earth911. Do they make you think differently about our pollution?
If you are in the DC area and have the urge to create your own art from discarded goods, check out Scrap DC's upcoming show at The Center for Green Urbanism. Submissions are being accepted through July 30. Or, if you are more of the spectator type, the show opens in September.
