A mini-exhibit on plastic waste, in honor of “Out to Sea”

From my Instagram account … Follow me there, http://instagram.com/alanatkisson

This is all the the plastic garbage I collected from the beach today, on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, in 45 minutes. I’ve arranged it as an Instagram square, for easy sharing.

The “Out to Sea” exhibition we sponsored in Stockholm has closed now, but the impact lives on: I simply cannot enjoy time on a beach until I have cleaned the plastic off it. Here, on the beach, I recreated my own little “Out to Sea” exhibition.

While collecting it, people asked what I was doing and were appropriately appalled when I (briefly) explained the problem. One family noted, “that issue is getting more attention now, isn’t it?” Yes, thankfully, it is. I’d like to hope we – and all our contributors and crowdfunders – helped a little. The world is finally waking up. Plastic waste is terrible, and #Oceanisthenewclimate
