One Plastic Beach

One Plastic Beach from Tess Thackara on Vimeo.

This is a facinating video featuring Judith Selby Lang and Richard Lang . This couple is well-known for collecting plastic washed up on Kehoe beach.They have been doing it for 12 years and creating fantastic art from their collections.

P.S.I have a handy little collection of Kraft Cheese spreaders from local Melbourne beaches too.


  1. Shocking! Amazing art but a dreadful tribute to the carelessnes and selfishness of mankind!

  2. Thank you for bringing such thoughtful commentary to all of us today.

  3. So incredible. What an enormous quantity and from such a small portion of the coast. 'Shocking' seems like such a tame word to use for something so incredibly horrifying. Perhaps we all need to open a discussion with Kraft and other likeminded organisations who repeatedly make these idiotic decisions to use plastic where other, naturally occurring, and therefore biodegradable, resources could be used as a substitute.
    Thanks, Liz.
