In 8 years over 20 tons of garbage has been picked up off Oregon beaches and processed into over 70 works of art. These art pieces have become ocean ambassadors and have toured to more than 30 locations around the nation including the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and the United Nations in NYC. The traveling exhibits have been viewed by over 20 million people. The headquarters of Washed Ashore is in Bandon, Oregon. Bandon is a unique place, shaped by the nature and beauty of the Southern Coast of Oregon. Wild woods and streams, stunning quiet beaches with beautiful ocean vistas and friendly neighbors make Bandon a special place to live.
