My name is Rommy Paz Osorio, I currently live in the city of Puerto Montt, Chile. I am an environmental engineer and the founder of Paz Recycling, a company that provides environmental advisory services and promotes the development of various sustainable projects. During the past years, I have organized many beach cleanings with the help of the industry in the South of Chile, also with other organizations, where the focus has always been to remove the bulkiest plastics or waste from the local beaches.This is how @basuraplayera was born, art from macro, meso, and microplastics collected on the beaches of southern Chile. Since many people see it as a distant problem, the objective is to make visible the magnitude of the pollution produced by this waste, which is difficult to collect due to its size and can last several hundred years, these plastic fragments are found massively on the coastal edges of various areas and remain adrift. Beach litter invites us to look head-on at the problem of plastic and microplastic pollution in the ocean, as this is one of the greatest environmental problems we are facing today, and it represents a great threat to marine biodiversity. We must urgently stop the entry of plastics into the ocean, otherwise plastic will continue to accumulate rapidly on the beaches of the entire planet and will continue to transform our oceans and reserve an uncertain future for all.
