1.14 million brown paper supermarket bags= # used in the US every hour.

Running the numbers. An American Self-Portrait. 2.4 million pieces of plastic= to the estimated # of pounds of plastic pollution that enter the world's oceans every hour. All plastic in this image was collected from the Pacific Ocean.

"The pervasiveness of our consumerism holds a seductive kind of mob mentality. Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences. I fear that in this process we are doing irreparable harm to our planet and to our individual spirits." -chrisjordan.com
