Like global warming, pollution is universally known of, but many disregard it and its impact on their everyday lives. This image is successful in the sense that it reminds individuals of the problem of ocean pollution.

If a small fish eats bits of plastic, and a larger salmon eats many small fish and other polluted debri, that larger salmon could very easily be the same fish you had for dinner last night. In addition, the ad pictured above goes the extra step to include a jarring piece of research concerning the amount of plastic fish consume to justify its reasoning and prove the trash sushi a possible
