Washed Ashore is a summer long exhibit at the National Zoo featuring 17 marine sculptures made entirely from plastic pollution directly recovered from the ocean. These sculpture represent the more than 315 billion pounds of plastic in oceans. The exhibition is created by The Washed Ashore Project. These sculptures are actually really well done, with cool details. We only viewed the sculptures at the top part of the zoo, but plastics used included, beach toys, umbrellas, bottles, fishing poles, flip flops, toilet seats, boogie boards, and even shotgun shells.
