I used paint, colored pencils, colored pencil sticks, and chalk.
We know that pollution affects us all, and it is such a big problem that we think we as individuals can’t do anything to help. 65% of drinking water comes from rivers and streams, but 40% of rivers and streams in the United States are too polluted for fishing and swimming. Over 80% of marine pollution comes from land-based activities, which affects our drinking water as well as animals’ homes.
I used black paint to represent the oil spills, and how they affected wildlife. In the background, I drew a skyline in black chalk and smeared it to show how our pollution and smoke is still in the air we breath. I covered the recycle-logo in the black chalk to show how our efforts still aren’t enough.
