Flip Flop Fish

 

ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

FLIP FLOP FISH

What is the true cost of inexpensive shoes and flip flops? Most flip flop shoes are made of polyurethane, a plastic made from crude oil that cannot be recycled and persists in the environment for years. When flip flops are created, they are punched out of a form that also adds to the waste stream. A sandal that is only meant to be worn for a season can persists in the environment for decades.

Can you find these marine debris items in this sculpture?

  • flip flops
  • factory cutouts
  • bite marks
  • bird peck marks
  • shoe soles

If you can’t you’d better plan a visit to the Zoo today to see these amazing sculptures in person!

You can purchase Zoo Admission tickets online!

 


PLASTICS ARE FOREVER

The next time you buy a plastic product, consider how long the plastic is going to last. If it cannot be recycled, find an creative way to reuse or repurpose it and avoid adding to the waste stream. Jus like Washed Ashore, you can repurpose discarded plastics.
