Ocean rubbish turned into marine animals

Most of the time all this rubbish I’m collecting would ultimately end up in landfill. What I’m trying to do is reduce landfill plus create awareness about all this rubbish that’s ending up in our oceans because it’s effecting our marine creatures that live there. The rubbish I mainly find is bottle lids, cigarette lighters, toothbrushes and lots of plastic. Weather this debris is coming from our shores or from somewhere else I’m not sure but I know one thing, it’s ending up on our beaches and people like me are the ones picking it up.

Once you start picking up marine debris off the beach it becomes hard to walk past. The challenge is turning a piece of rubbish that is considered worthless by our society and turning it into a piece of art that has some value.

Fold the paper making 8 equal bands. The body of the alligator is made by 10 short bands. These are the remaining parts for the rest of the alligator. The tail is made from a long band. The mouth is made from the second long band. The legs are made from the two thin bands, which are folded by the middle, glued and folded in both ends. The eyes are made by the last, eleventh, short band. To make your alligator scary apply the sharp teeth. Welcome to! Moving fish.
