They say by the year 2050 that there will be more trash in the ocean than fish.
Judging by these shocking photos captured by photographer Carolina Power, we are well on our way to this horrific reality.
Caroline Power is well-known for her incredible photography that is focused on bringing awareness to environmental issues that are endangering this beautiful Planet we call home.
Instead of pointing fingers at any one person, Power encourages us all to take a look in the mirror at how our own actions contribute to the problem.
Alongside her photographs, Power posed questions like: “Do you still use plastic garbage bags? Plastic soda bottles? Ziplock bags? Plastic wrap on your food?”
Chances are, you probably do. We can gawk at these images all day, but real change will only come from each one of us doing something about it.
