Fighting Ocean Pollution With Beautiful Mermaids
Fighting ocean pollution should be a priority for everybody, no matter the country, religion or political affinity. A polluted ocean means a polluted planet which will lead to global warming, natural disasters and a whole new series of epidemics on Earth.
The Mermaid Project tackles ocean pollution with a series of beautiful mermaids that show us why the ocean and Mother Nature should be protected by every human being. Beautiful women are dressed up as stunning mermaids, showing how ocean pollution will affect your life in the future.
Fighting ocean pollution with beautiful mermaids is a photo series that started in 2012, when fashion photographer Angelina Venturella and underwater photographer Chiara Salomoni decided to team up and fight for ocean conservation.
They started photographing celebrities dressed as mermaids and they quickly managed to bring their project into the spotlight. After almost 4 years of work, the project has caught the eye of millions and with the constant donations they receive, they fight against ocean pollution by cleaning beaches, one by one.
Climate change, global warming and ocean pollution have been getting a lot of attention in the past few decades. Serious actions have been undertaken by all the countries in the world, big corporations and activist groups.
Adidas even created snickers out of illegal plastic collected from the oceans. World leaders even signed an anti-global warming pact in Paris, at the COP21 in 2015. The world is definitely heading in the right direction if more and more actions like these will take place. Let’s just hope that corporate greed and peoples’ ignorance won’t take over the planet.
Let’s work together for the greater good!
