I Draw Comics To Show How Plastic Waste Affects Marine Life (30 Pics)

Hi, I’m Rob.

I make comics about nature and why it’s worth saving.

You might think that’s a sober theme, but in order to drive these ideas home, I use humor as my vehicle.

Here’s a 5-year retrospective about all the junk that’s in our oceans. If this doesn’t inspire you to cut down on single-use plastics, I’m not sure what will!

Living in Seattle and often taking in the splendor of Washington State’s natural beauty and wildlife, I’ve dedicated my time to creating artwork that engages people about biodiversity, kindness to all living things and why that’s important. Since it’s so hard for me to take anything seriously, the gel that I use to hold all these subjects together is humor. No matter how grim an idea I might convey, I always add a dash of gallows humor to make the sadness a bit more palatable.

This Kenyan Company Is Turning Plastic Waste Into Bricks

Gjenge Makers is a company started by 29-year-old Kenyan woman Nzambi Matee, that specializes in recycling plastic into building blocks. It all started back in 2017, after the woman quit her job as a data analyst and started creating and testing different paving materials made of plastic and sand in her mother’s back yard. Nzambi ended up putting all of her savings into the project and in the end it was all worth it – she ended up winning a scholarship to attend a social entrepreneurship training program in the USA.

Here Are My 22 Assemblage Paintings That I Created To Bring Awareness To Plastic Waste

Most conventional plastic crap is made from non-biodegradable petrochemicals—instead of decomposing over time, it simply breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces (micro-plastics).

Since the 1950’s, plastic has become a popular material in the world: used in endless ways, found in countless items, and often made to be discarded and disregarded in mere minutes.

Since the majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, plastic waste has only accumulated over time, affecting our physical health and environment. In an effort to bring awareness to this issue and to keep some plastic from going into landfills or the ocean, I make art from plastic waste. What can we do to make a change?

Spread awareness, be mindful of plastic consumption, demand more plastic be made biodegradable—buying only plastic items that are. Be creative about making a change!

China Doesn’t Want Our Plastic Crap Anymore

China Doesn’t Want Our Plastic Crap Anymore

At the end of 2017, China announced it was going to start restricting imported plastic (and other goods) for recycling. For decades, the USA had sent tons and tons of plastic to China for this reason. Once the restrictions were put in place, waste management companies in America had to find other options for recycling. The two choices: greatly increase the price for recycling or throw it away— most have chosen the latter.

I hope that, someday, it will be impossible to find materials for this plastic art. They are making cups out of algae so maybe. Thank you for this thoughtful, amazing art. I’m busy rethinking how to create a bigger art statement about justice and how we treat the earth and each other.0Reply
