sculptures from beach trash

A group of eco-minded artists from the UK-based NGO Camps International, have spent the summer cleaning up beaches on the Kenyan coastline and collected some 200 bags of ocean debris, including over 7000 discarded flip-flops. They used some of the debris to create two life-size sculptures, a whale shark-the world’s largest fish and a whale. The sculptures are meant to encourage individuals to think about the aquatic ecosystem before using the ocean as a dump site.
