13. A Sea of Garbage
Looking out at the ocean of garbage the issue seems overwhelmingly present. The photographer, Power, went on to tell The Telegraph that, “Once the trash is in the ocean, it is incredibly difficult and costly to remove. The key is to stop the trash before it enters the ocean. In order for that to happen, we need to improve waste management, environmental education, and recycling facilities on a global scale. This is a developed nation (first world) problem as well.” Many countries around the world have not yet dedicated enough time or resources to fight the build-up of trash, let alone making sure it doesn’t make it’s way to the ocean.
