The Sea Creature Sculptures At The Washed Ashore Exhibit In Oregon Are All Made From Ocean Debris

Oregon is home to some truly unique attractions, but few are as mesmerizing and powerful as the Washed Ashore Project. Every year, roughly 300 million pounds of plastic is produced worldwide every year, but less than 10% of that is recycled. Unfortunately, as a result, much of that plastic ends up in our oceans, causing devastating effects to our marine life. Washed Ashore seeks to shine a light on this global crisis through-provoking works of art, and it’s truly something everyone should see. Let’s take a closer look.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
