Daisy Cosplay is Ariel from The Little Mermaid in this heartbreaking cosplay photos series that brings attention to the horrific pollution humanity is dumping into our precious oceans. Here's more about the project...

"-Part of Your World - Cosplay4Ocean project-

The U.S. alone produces 32 million tons of plastic waste per year. These plastics end up in landfills, waterways and our oceans. Everybody talks about how bad plastic pollution is, but not everyone realized the impact that plastics have on marine ecosystems. 

Around 270,000 tons of plastic are floating on the surface of the oceans and according to a recent study from Plymouth University, plastic pollution affects 700 marine species and at least 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution. Researchers believe that plastic plays a role in rising rates of species extinction. The most affected groups are Fish, Marine Mammals, Sea Turtle, Sea Lions and Sea Birds. 

The single-use of millions of tons of plastic is unsustainable.

Around 52% of the wildlife disappeared in the past 40 years, and if we continue to dump plastic into the world’s oceans, this number is set to increase exponentially. The ocean can’t wait for long term solutions, and we need to act now. Plastic production is expected to increase in the next years, but we can do something. We are to blame for plastic pollution, but we are the ones who have the power to stop this.

If you want to contribute to protect marine animals and ecosystems, you need to decrease your personal plastic consumption. This is not always easy, but many companies developed and marketed alternatives and eco-friendly substitutes, such as reusable bags, bamboo straws and toothbrushes, algae/edible cutlery. 

Moreover, a correct waste management improves not only ocean health, but also public health, by preventing the spread of diseases and food chain contamination.  That's why we need to support organizations who work everyday to keep cleaner our oceans.  So please, take a look to Ocean Conservancy - Trash Free Seas initiative."
