Over a period of five days in January 2013, I collected, sorted and photographed plastic washed up on Marcus Beach, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. I am exploring the creative possibilities of these photographs. Plastic Free July seemed like a good time to feature the journey so far.
Picking up debris -predominantly plastic – from the beach reminds me each day why I avoid single use plastic packaging, say no to plastic bags and plastic drink bottles, and choose food items packaged in cardboard or glass wherever possible. Many of us at along this coastal strip pick up rubbish on our daily beach walks. It’s our small contribution to the health of our planet.
