Micro Plastics

This piece is a parody of the “Swedish Fish” bag, but instead of a fish, is a fish-shaped pile of microplastics. “Microplastics are tiny plastic particles that result from both commercial product development and the breakdown of larger plastics. As a pollutant, microplastics can be harmful to the environment and animal health…Microplastics have been detected in marine organisms from plankton to whales, in commercial seafood, and even in drinking water” - National Geographic. “Microplastic pollution has been detected in human blood for the first time, with scientists finding the tiny particles in almost 80% of the people tested” - The Guardian.
