Every day for the month of December, travel photographer Meredith Andrews has been keeping an “Adventgram” on her Instagram account. Each post depicts a collection of artfully arranged plastic waste Andrews has found in an effort to shine light on the global plastic crisis.
Andrews focuses on a specific category of trash each day and offers viewers suggestions for how they can stop more of that item from ending up in the sea.
EcoWatch has more details:
At least eight million tons of plastic ends up in the world's oceans every year, and some of it washes up on the beautiful pink-sand beaches of Bermuda. But one inventive artist has found a way to turn this tragedy into a unique and educational take on the traditional Advent calendar, CNN reported.
Every day this December, travel photographer Meredith Andrews has been using her Instagram to add a new page to her "Adventgram." Each page photographs a collection of artfully arranged plastic items Andrews has found.
"I'm just trying to say that this is all of our problem. We are choking in plastic. We are drowning in plastic," Andrews told CNN. "Killing our ocean and choking our ocean with plastic is going to have such a detrimental effect on everyone on the planet."
