Photographer Benjamin Von Shows Why Mermaids Hate Plastic So Much

Photographer Benjamin began a project to raise awareness on how pollution is affecting the marine life and people too.


Have you ever wondered what happens to all the plastic that you just throw randomly here and there? All those plastic bottles do not end up in the recycling chain, some end up in the sea which is extremely harmful and dangerous to people and animals alike. This photographer is trying to raise awareness against pollution.

Plastic in the ocean causes much more than water pollution. It kills the marine life in fact.

It releases toxins that can potentially contaminate water sources and this also negatively affects air quality.

“If the average American uses 167 plastic bottles a year, in 60 years they will have used 10,000 plastic bottles.”

“Over the course of a few days, a small army of volunteers came to help de-label, un-cap, and clean our 10,000 bottles”
“Change happens when individuals come together to fight for something they believe in,” the artist said
