“The Haunting Art of Plastic Pollution”
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. National Geographic this week features a story about Mandy Barker, an artist who uses trash from the sea and birds’ stomachs, forcing us to face our waste. To quote the story – “Every piece of plastic here was found in the stomach of a single albatross chick. Laid bare outside the bird they killed, the plastic pieces—from the bottle caps in the top row to the tiny fragments along the bottom—all represent “parts of something we could have once used,” photographer Mandy Barker says. “
This is a graphic illustration of why we have our Springtime Initiative – “Taking Greener Steps“.
