Plastic Pollution

Washed Ashore exhibit brings colorful new focus on plastic pollution to the Oregon Zoo –

A colorful exhibit at the Oregon Zoo is placing major emphasis on plastic pollution. 

‘Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea”, was started by Bandon Artist, Angela Haseltine Pozzi, back in 2010 with a mission to collect plastic pollution along the Oregon coast, and turn it into art!

The exhibit features life-size, vibrant, seas creators and beyond, made of debris collected along Oregon beaches with the help of local volunteers. 


Pozzi says,Our mission is to build an exhibit aesthetically pleasing art to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in the ocean, and waterways, and to spark positive changes in consumer habits.”
