When a plastic bottle drifts out to sea, it takes roughly 1000 years for it to decompose fully. In the meantime, fish eat the plastic and we eat the fish. Plastic is not only making its way up the food chain but its way into our DNA. We think that's creepy. So do the fishermen and their families of Lobitos, Peru.
Facilitated by the Lobitos Cinema Project, the Lobitos community joined together to paint a mural promoting the reuse of plastic bottles versus letting them float out to sea, out of mind, and later into our bellies.
