Wishing to draw attention to how human society is polluting marine environments by not paying sufficient attention to what happens to various plastic items once they are no longer of use, photographer Kim Preston put together a series titled “Plastic Pacific.”

The idea behind this collection of photographs is fairly simple, yet the artist more than succeeds in delivering the message.

Thanks to humans’ constantly polluting marine environments worldwide, it may very well happen that, at one point in the future, the only aquatic “life forms” left for us to admire will be plastic bags and shower caps such as the one in the picture above.

According to Tree Hugger, Kim Preston worked on a rather tight budget when making this series, yet the results are impressive, to say the least.
