Costa Sunglasses is committed to sustainable sport fishing practices and ocean conservation. We've launched our Kick Plastic campaign earlier this year to educate our customers about the growing ocean trash issue, and encourage them to kick the plastic habit. Now, we've taken the initiative one step further by commissioning a sculpture of a jumping marlin made entirely out of washed up beach trash.
The sculpture is meant to serve as a stark reminder of how much trash can be found on coastal beaches, and start conversations about how anglers can become more involved in addressing the plastic problem.
The nine-foot tall, seven-foot long fish was made by Artist Angela Pozzi and over 450 staff and volunteers from the non-profit organization Washed Ashore. They worked over 7 months assembling the sculpture using thousands of pieces of collected plastic trash found on Pacific beaches.
