Washed Ashore is an organization that uses "art to save the sea," creating these poignant sculptures using beach waste found in nearby bodies of water.

Various sea creatures were designed like a beached shark, tangled up fish and trash-topping squid. The art piece consists of smaller fragments like beer cans, water bottles or plastic bags. There are also some shockingly large pieces of garbage as well like the back of a plastic chair.

The beach waste art doesn't just serve as an impressive artistic feat but also visualizes the destruction we have had on our oceans and planet. The series serves to remind that vast amounts of ocean trash washes up all around the world and it is everyone's global responsibility to mitigate this problem.
