Plastic is ubiquitous to daily life—it envelopes our bodies in our synthetic clothing, wraps our food, and even holds our drinking water. By chucking a plastic bag into a body of water, it eventually turns into millions of micro-plastics that fish eat and becomes a part of our food chain. Plastics are also known to release toxic chemicals into the surrounding soils and harms ecosystems by contaminating groundwater and other nearby water sources. The image I created shows what Vancouver may have looked like prior to urbanization. Currently, Vancouver is a large, bustling city that is still growing! To find nature that is untouched by civilization is becoming rarer. We need to protect nature at all costs by disposing of plastics properly and by being conscious consumers by not purchasing unnecessary products. If we do not act now, nature will be no more.
