National Geographic magazine has launched a campaign titled ‘Planet or Plastic’ to raise awareness about plastic pollution and the threat it poses to the oceans.
For their June 2018 cover, Mexican artist Jorge Gamboa has come up with an iconic photo-illustration that looks like an iceberg at first, but is actually a plastic bag partially submerged in the ocean. The tagline reads “18 billion pounds of plastic ends up in the ocean each year. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.” Check it out below.
