Earth Day

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 24 April 2019 in Documentary & Street.

The bottles along the walls and in the water show the large amount of plastics that are discarded into rivers, lakes and oceans. The poster discusses the damage plastic bottles cause and the importance in recycling.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."

This gives a clear message of the problems caused by discarding plastic. Thousands of animals are killed and injured each year with plastics being dumped. Excellent image Elaine. 5*

A disturbing reality. Your image is full of lovely light and color. But it really brings home the point of the need for better recycling.

The point of the presentation of discarded plastics is well made and urgent and your image puts it across well. This is a subject close to my heart.
