Environmental Infographics

2019

Constantly bombarded with meaningless figures I attempted to create a series of conceptual infographics to communicate the issues our environment faces.

#1: Plastic Bag Consumption, a recent report by the Environmental Investigation Agency found the fall in single-use plastic bags was being undermined by the production and consumption of the much thicker ‘Bags for Life’ with numbers rising to an estimated 950 billion by the end of 2017. 

#2: Each year approximately 108 million rolls of wrapping is discarded at Christmas, which equates to roughly 489,879 tonnes almost as much as two Knock Nevis Oil Tankers (260,000 tonnes each).
