Did you know that on average, a person consumes a credit card of micro plastic each week? It is forecast that there may be more plastic in the ocean than fish in 2050 if we don’t make changes in our single use plastic consumption. I thought this might be a comical way to encourage people to rethink their behaviour associated with plastic they only use once. The augmented reality animation will hopefully engage the audience in a new way.
