An island of plastic “the size of Texas” floats in the earth's oceans. The presence of plastic contaminants is actually more dispersed, less visible and more harmful to ocean life than a solitary island. Plastics break down into tiny particles and are ingested by animals all the way up the food chain. With my rainbow inspired 2020 Mask composition, I wish to raise consciousness of this reality and create hope that we can be more responsible about our use of disposable plastic products.
