Perranporth Beach & the Plastic Pollution Problem

This project is communicating the complex issue of plastic pollution in our oceans to a young target audience. My outcome is a website prototype made in Adobe XD and is called Perranporth Beach & the Plastic Pollution Problem.

It aims to teach children about the dangers to our ecosystem if the plastic pollution problem was to continue as normal. It stemmed from a quote by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation that By 2050, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish (2017). Throughout this year I have focused my illustrations towards children and using it to teach them about mature topics. I feel sustainability is especially important for children to learn as climate change will directly impact their lives.
