Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

Our mural addresses the severe impact of plastics pollution on our Oceans from physically assaulting large scale mammals, fish & turtles down to tiny particles now being consumed by deep sea fish to plankton.

It is estimated that plastic will outweigh fish in the ocean by 2050!

We must all reduce our daily usage of plastics, especially single use products to prevent this continual poisoning of our seas and ourselves.
