Using Trash to Make Art

Last summer almost 500,000 pieces of trash were picked up off of New Jersey’s beaches.  This does not include the amount of trash that has found its way into the ocean.  3/4th of the trash found on our beaches were plastics.  We need to change the way we act before we destroy our beloved beaches.   We don’t want Asbury Park to end up looking like this

I challenge you readers to post pictures of yourselves using a reusable bag or finding ways to turn your trash into something beautiful.  Take some time, get creative, save your old plastic bags and make something interesting to spread awareness about trash on our beaches! Get to work on saving Asbury Park.
