Today's debris collection was smaller than the last time however we collected items such as straws, lighters, a small piece of fabric could have been a rug, etc. We did our 100 meters of beach and then we sorted it all out and took down the information on our NOAA datasheet. What I think we could possible make or create with the trash we collected is a small art project laid out on a paper or board probably of a animal possibly. Or maybe a statue. A small one.

Today there were not much marine trash found within our area. We did find some lighters and bunch of plastic pieces ranging from the size of a basketball down to the size of a bottle cap. Also we got some lumber and concrete blocks.


I dont think i could create something out of the debris but im sure someone could make something out of what we collected today.

We collected different types of marine debris like polystyrene, rubber, plastics, and other rubbish. I dont really have a creative mind but I could probably make Legos out of it by doing a hydraulic compact and smashing the plastics together. Today on the beach there was not to many rubbish in our 100m boundary we were working in which was a good this. Our beaches and ocean is slowly getting better. All we got to do is take time to malama aina.
