I Design Ads Of Major Companies That Show The Harsh Reality (Warning: Upsetting Content)

My name is Igor Dobrowolski and I’m a Polish artist. Recently, I designed my own version of the real advertisement.  Corporations like Nestlé and Unilever profit wildly from single-use plastic packaging while peddling the myth of recycling as a solution. But anyone who has thought seriously about the issue can see that recycling could never handle the amount of plastic surrounding our everyday life.

Coca-cola

Also, don’t forget that plastic is itself created from fossil fuels and lobbied for by the fossil fuel industry, while they desperately try to maintain the single-use plastic status quo instead of tackling the problem at the source. Only by stopping the production of single-use plastics can this crisis be addressed.

Lukoil

Kate Lin is a senior campaigner at Greenpeace East Asia, based in Hong Kong. She says that the measure of human demands on Earth’s natural resources is known as our ecological footprint. Currently, we use the equivalent of 1.5 Earths to produce all the renewable resources we use. As the human population grows, the challenge of reducing our footprint becomes more urgent.

Years of scientific investigation have given us a clear understanding of what’s causing climate change and how humans are contributing. It works like this:

Certain gases in the atmosphere — like carbon dioxide — create what’s called the greenhouse effect, trapping in heat and regulating the Earth’s temperature.

Burning fossil fuels releases more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide. While not the most potent greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide is by far the most emitted by human activities.

Nutella

More greenhouse gases in the atmosphere mean a more intense greenhouse effect, causing the Earth to keep getting warmer. There’s more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere now than there’s been in the past 150,000 years. We’re also learning more about the impacts of climate change, many of which have serious consequences for humans and wildlife.

Nestle

The devastating impacts of climate change are clear. Our world is warmer than ever before, and people and wildlife are already suffering the consequences. But that’s nothing compared to what we’re leaving future generations if these trends continue. It’s time to stop the destruction. It’s time for an energy revolution.

BP

Fossil fuels — coal, oil and, natural gas — are major contributors to climate change, accounting for the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions.

They’re also one of the main culprits polluting our air, water, and soil. Coal-burning power plants, for example, produce millions of tons of toxic sludge every year, and we’re stilling reeling from the impacts of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon spill that rocked the Gulf of Mexico.

Heartbreaking. I stopped eating Nutella and everything with palm oil in it since about two years. And I collect even the smallest piece of plastic (glass, metal, paper) selectively.

Exactly. Ppl think you can sustainably grow it, but where there is demand, there will be those operating outside limitations. So Nutella’s good stewardship is a farce. I live canola field adjacent. It’s a whole other prairie grass issue (aka a grass birds issue), but much more sustainable

the first time i saw a pic of an animal with the little round soda bottle cap trim stuck on them I experienced a lifetime of guilt for not cutting them before tossing them out. I had no idea. Images like this are PAINFUL to see but also so critical so people can make changes to their behavior to eliminate their tiny portion of damages. We no longer buy any soda, we use a home fizz system. No nutella here and I limit as much as possible items with palm oil and when I shop I do not buy items with excessive packaging as I cannot easily recycle it where I live. We drive so little that our 10 and 18 yr old cars barely have 100k miles on them together. I am eager to transition to a battery powered car but we have to transport a person who uses a power wheelchair often so that conversion needs to be available.

I hate to say it, if you are using a 'SodaStream' home fizz system, they operate in Israeli-occupied territory in the West Bank. A location that is both hindering the peace process and allowing the company to profit off an occupied people. https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2014/01/why-these-people-want-you-to-boycott-sodastream/
