"Plastic Beach," as it is more commonly known, Kamilo Beach sits on the southern tip of the big island of Hawaii, where strong currents wash large quantities of marine debris ashore regularly.

As photographs and video get picked over and edited there are the inevitable items that didn't get chosen, that end up not being used for anything. You'll find them here...
