I created this image as part of the “Design for a Better World” theme in one of my Photoshop classes. My take on this theme was the problem of plastic pollution. Many of the plastic bottles and plastic bags we throw away end up in the ocean. Birds and other marine life mistake plastic bottle caps and other plastic objects for food and eat them until they literally die from ingesting too much plastic. They can also get ensnared in plastic bags and plastic six-pack rings. I hope this image increases people’s awareness of this problem.
