​We had to do a project on recycling and how it effects the world. Notifying the community about the harm that garage can do to our plant. So i decide to draw a picture of the earth and have trash fall from the sky

People tend to throw there trash on the ground because they assume that it does not bring harm to our plant and that other do to so why can't they. Honestly, it killing our ozone layer and the plant is quickly decaying. 

Then we learned about the island of trash that is located in the Pacific Ocean and i though it be awesome to incorporate it into my drawing. and show that there is an unknown island on the map and is just filled with trash..

I going to continue to add more trash and color it in.. If i could do this differently i would make it bigger on a canvas or poster board. I enjoyed the topic of the recycling.
