“Cigarette butts, small bits of plastic, and bottle caps are the most common waste items found littered across Woodbine Beach. In an effort to promote a cleaner beach, Plastic Free Beach Toronto is hosting a clean-up.
On Sunday, Sept. 6, residents can join a beach clean up as Plastic Free Beach Toronto team member Dora Attard reveals an art installation made of more than 500 water bottles and thousands of pieces of plastic found on the beach over this summer.
It’s not the first time she’s made an art installation from litter to help highlight the problem of plastic waste.
In 2018, Attard collected thousands of bits of plastic from the beach and created several art installations including an eight-foot-high water bottle-shaped sculpture using 1,000 plastic water bottles.
It’s the organization’s third annual waste collection event.”
