Happy Earth Day!

Photographer Alex Brown posted a nice typographic/photo series from a trip to Tulum, Mexico reminding us to think about Mother Earth and the larger impact of our consumption problem.

Artist Statement:

Each year around 100 million tonnes of plastic are produced and 10% of this ends up in the ocean. Right now there is a million pound mass of garbage bigger than Texas accumulating in the Pacific between California and Hawaii known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. To highlight this growing problem of marine pollution, these letters were made from actual trash collected on a small stretch of beach in Tulum, Mexico
