A months worth of plastic rubbish. As the world chokes on plastics we as a species keep generating more, almost every ecosystem is being effected by plastics, a by product of the fossil fuels industries and as we approach 2018 the corporate world is increasing the production of disposable packaging by as much as 40% more than we are currently generating, whilst globally recycling rates are very low. One of the problems is that we cannot escape from the disposable packaging in our daily lives, so here's mine, one months worth of drinks, ice cream and other plastics that came with equipment etc. Steve Merrick, 27/12/2018 Pollutants Consumption  Consumerism Anthropocene Anthropoceneextinction Anthropoceneextinction Environment Environmental Issues Plasticsucks Plastic Bottle Plastic Pollutants Plastic Waste Plastic Olympus Zuiko Steve Merrick Stevesevilempire Still Life Close-up Indoors  Multi Colored No People Day
Every week I will be using plastics, there is at this point little option but to, and as I know what damage human made plastics are doing to our environments, I wondered how to illustrate that very negative impact. So I made some plastic Molotov cocktails. Filled with less than a weeks worth of plastic as used by me. Maybe I should give up orange juice, but almost everything I eat and even smoke comes in plastic packaging. The same plastic that is strangling eco systems every where and in some studies has even showed up in the air we breath. So here’s a plastic bomb, a graphic IED, an illustration of sort about the damage that plastics are doing to us and our environment. Draw your own conclusions but we do have to reduce our use and increase our recycling, whilst industry has to find the cleanest way possible to drink a healthy orange juice......
