Planet Or Plastic?
Exploring Plastic Pollution From Mid-1800s To Present

Plastic pollution is most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where garbage collection systems are often inefficient or nonexistent. But the developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has trouble properly collecting discarded plastics. Learn about the global plastic pollution crisis through more than 70 powerful photographs and videos in an exhibition by National Geographic. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, plastic waste is everywhere. Plastics have damaging effects well beyond the ocean.

ArtScience Museum’s Planet or Plastic? shines a spotlight on the fragility of the natural environment as a result of the global plastic waste crisis. The exhibition endeavors to raise awareness of society’s dependence on plastic by visually depicting the crisis and highlighting the innovative individuals and communities who are working on solutions to this urgent problem. Featuring the work of researchers, scientists, and artists, the exhibition traces the history of plastic from its invention in the mid-1800s to the present day where seemingly everything is made of plastic.

Planet or Plastic? explores the plastic pollution of our world’s oceans and uncovers how untold numbers of marine animals die each year from ingesting microplastics. The exhibition uses photographs as a means of making this urgent issue strikingly real. Planet or Plastic? provides practical steps we can take to responsibly reduce, reuse, recycle, and refuse single-use plastic products.
