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.
