Half of all plastic produced, like the water bottles in our art installation, are designed for single-use purposes – 80% of which is never recycled.
When we throw away plastic, it doesn’t disappear. Ultimately, all plastic waste finds its way into oceans where it never breaks down completely. Instead, it turns into into tiny toxic particles called microplastics, now ubiquitous in our rainwater and bloodstreams.
While the magnitude of the crisis can seem overwhelming, we ALL can be part of the solution by changing how we consume and dispose of the plastic we use.
