Do we really need it?

Do we really need it?

Kristina Kapeljuh, 21

The damage caused by use of plastic has been discussed for a long time, yet when it comes to everyday life average consumer does not regard the pollution of marine environment when ordering cold coffee with a straw.

This is why this work aims to raise the awareness of results of our everyday choices. It communicates, with a comparably repulsive but effective imagery, that it is our behaviour that led to destructive consequences in nature, thus it is our responsibility to change and fix these consequences. The question is big, yet first step is small: question your decisions. Do you really need a straw? It is very easy to drink without one.
