Amazing Animal Sculptures Made Entirely from Trash (Slideshow)


"Emergence" by Sayaka Kajita Ganz.

From milk jugs turned into toys to a suit made out of old cassette tapes, we here at TreeHugger have a soft spot for all things recycled. And with all the trash people generate killing animals at roadsides and out in the ocean, it's especially poignant to see artists recycling some of that potential garbage into humorous, haunting, and just plain cool representations of the creatures it might otherwise have put at risk.
