The world is currently on a war against its most aversive invention: plastic. Years of patronizing the use of plastic in almost everything that is produced, bought, and invented has finally taken a toll on the world, the environment, and most especially the ocean.

Turning the Mess into The Art

Waves of news showing how ocean’s creatures die and washed onshore with nothing but plastic wastes on their mouths have been the biggest turning point of everything. Surely, if you saw this on the news or better yet in person, you would have stopped using plastic then and there. But, the ratio of not using plastic versus the whole world using it will surely amplify the problem, causing nothing but pollution and death of sea animals.
To put a massive stop to what plastic negatively caters to the world now, a higher form of war to resonate is using made and produced plastic into art, and finally, stop the production of it.

Existing plastic all around the world is now being used and transformed into art and anything that can cater to more help than damage. Creativity is turning this junk into inventions of art is now being promoted. Plastic materials take thousand of years to decay, imagine turning it into an art that can better serve a purpose and can stay for a thousand-year instead.

Artists from all around the world are now working hand in hand to end plastic pollution. Clean up drives are now being made by private institutions and individuals. Collected plastic from these clean up drives is now being turned into swimwears, plastic paintings, furniture, and even used in plastic deckings. High-end renowned clothing brands also introduced their use of collected plastic waste into their own pieces of clothing, now seen on the runway and sold for thousands of dollars. Proceeds of these ones are then donated to institutions that are adamant into cleaning and putting up programs to help stop the plastic production and pollution.

People had their fair share of using plastic and its benefits before, but as negatively seen it is now in our hands to be fair to the Earth we live in.
