"The Washed Ashore Project is a non-profit, community-based organization with a mission of educating and creating awareness about marine debris and plastic pollution through art".  It is lead by founder Angela Haseltine Pozzi.  The mistake that most people make when judging these projects, is to say that the organisers are kidding themselves, if they think that they can get rid of the problem by making art out of all the plastic.  In fact what people like Pozzi are doing, is to use art to bring awareness to the problem, making us, all of us, conscious that we are part of the problem and that it is within our power to stop this from happening.  These are some sobering statistics:  In the last 5 years they have processed 17 tons of plastic into 66 Sculptures.  3 short videos below, 2 from 2013 and the last from 2015, the third looks more at the process.
