Mermaids Hate Plastic

Ben Von Wong is a photographer looking to create meaningful work. His latest campaign is called Mermaids Hate Plastic. Did you know that plastic takes 450 years to decompose?! That means that virtually every piece of plastic created still exists somewhere. Frightening. By 2050 there will more plastic than fish in the sea! It doesn’t have to be that way though. By making a conscious effort to use less plastic, we can change the amount of plastic that ends up in the ocean.

Upcycled Chopsticks

Here’s a clever idea, home decor items made from upcycled chopsticks! We love sushi, but what happens to those disposable bamboo chopsticks that many restaurants use? Apparently around 100,000 are thrown out every day in Vancouver, B.C. alone. That’s where the idea for ChopValue was born.
