With a staggering eight million metric tons of plastic waste dumped into the sea each year, we worked with Corona and Parley for the Oceans to highlight the issue by putting plastic into other places it doesn’t belong – everywhere from fashion to billboards to events.
Just in time for summer, we subverted that classic symbol of paradise, the Hawaiian shirt. Called The Paradise? I've designed a shirt together with Adolfo Correa to mimic the true state of paradise with a pattern that looks idyllic from a distance, but on closer inspection reveals plastic waste everywhere.
The hijack continued online and in OOH, where we swapped familiar images of paradise for beaches blighted by plastic pollution and Corona’s global tagline ‘This is Living’ became ‘This is Living?’. While special billboard activations in London, Australia, Dominican Republic and Colombia, showcased an enormous waves of actual plastic waste.
