Artists Against Plastics Collaboration
Plastic pollution is a consistent problem in the world’s oceans. Hundreds of thousands of marine creatures every year die from plastic entanglement and ingestion. A plastic bag can kill numerous animals because they take so long to disintegrate- its victims include whales, dolphins, mola mola, sea turtles and more. Other deadly items include straws, plastic bottles and cutlery and fishing gear. ・
Earlier this year, a pilot whale that died from nearly 20 pounds of plastic in its stomach made headlines- a heartbreaking ambassador for many animals affected by plastic pollution out at sea.
