Plastic Ocean 3: Underwater Garden

my intention is to raise awareness about our daily plastic consumption through creative reuse. i hand-stitched my own plastic waste to a machine-stitched textile surface. as a result of collecting these items, Iihave changed my own shopping habits and now try to avoid products packaged in single use plastic, particularly clamshells.
