Say hello to Merlinda, the mermaid made out of garbage and litter left on the beaches of Birchy Cove. A lot of Newfoundlanders sure do love to litter everywhere and it makes me sick to my stomach. Everywhere I go I see garbage strewn about and the good people of Birchy Cove decided to do something about it.
Thanks to one of our followers Mark Grey for allowing us to use his pictures and help spread the message to all those POS who litter so much all over this beautiful province. I’m glad to see more young folks piping up about this and hopefully over the next decade we see less and less garbage on the ground and beaches.
Say Hello to Merlinda.
Created from garbage collected on a beach in Birchy Cove, NL. Merlinda was designed to bring awareness to people regarding the mess found in our oceans.
