The environmental impacts that our current lifestyle habits are constantly leaving environmental scientists shocked and worried. And, rightly so, as statistics such as the pandemic leading to 129 billion face masks and 65 billion gloves being used globally every month continue to emerge. Looking to the power of art‘s poetic messaging and symbolism to incite impactful change, The Le Good Society’s founder and passionate environmentalist Tia Grazette has called on 20 seasoned artists to contribute to her Let’s Live with Less Plastic exhibit, which aligns with Plastic Free July.
Gracing the monumental billboards of 8 cities, including London and Glasgow, the exhibit has turned to the wonders of our new normal by hoping to raise a wide-scale awareness digitally. From statement pop art boasting the bold slogan “This Is Shit” to pieces such as “The Leak” depicting the harrowing scenes of a waterless world, artists such as Ben Eine, Ellise Chappel, Stuart Semple, Paul Davis and Scott King have all been called upon to seek inspiration from our current climate and to create an array of unique pieces that are united in the sentiment of hoping to encourage a reduction in plastic intake. And, in the hopes of causing a further impact, the exhibition also comes supported by Ocean For Oceans, OceanOutdoor and The Marine Conservation Society.
“Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats facing our planet,” states the exhibits Creative Director and Le Good Society founder Tia Grazette. “It is in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and clothes we wear – killing wildlife and polluting the oceans. We need to take collective action to stop this now. And what better way to encourage and remind everyone to use less plastic than through a nationwide outdoor art exhibit for plastic-free July. The art is unexpected, catches your eye and is a powerful way to communicate a message, so critical to life on earth.” ,
