When You Feed a Plankton Plastic
This piece is made of recycled plastic and vinyl and illustrates the problem of plastic in our oceans. An estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic makes its way into the oceans every year. A big problem is the microbeads found in toothpaste and exfoliants. They are eaten or absorbed by plankton at the bottom of the food chain and make their way up the food chain to us.
Vinyl, plastic and hand-dyed cotton. Machine appliqued.
