Plastic Ocean / Project

Plastic Ocean
Plastic Ocean

Plastic Ocean is an automatic vending car with a weekly routine of touring inside a city. It shows people their plastic usage that is calculated with purchase records online in a week and sells the weekly report. According to the report, users will get a cup of ice soda, or water, or water with active charcoal. Let’s say, the beverage is also a part of the report.
Plastic Ocean focuses on the problems of plastic pollution and microplastics. These tiny particles are having a sizeable impact on environmental, and possibly now, human health. The design exaggerates the process of microplastic intake by marine life, and, even by human.
