Target Audience Main Target Audience is young families
The Campaign encourages discussion and learning with
in a growing family
The Campaign should still affect the wider population and evoke emotion
The Campaign • The audience should realise the side effects of using plastic bags is having on the environment • The affects on the environment in the future • Want to make a change The way in which i have chosen too get this message and emotion across: The campaign logo is ‘Say Goodbye’ Secondary ‘to plastic bags’ Using the words ‘Goodbye” evokes emotion, this is telling the audience that it is going to be hard but it’s necessary I have also used this saying in the way that the audience either has to say goodbye to plastic bags or marine animals Also using a whale tale in the logo as a waving goodbye element Using Hand drawn illustrations to give the characters marine animals an extra incense, whilst also connecting with young children (Teaching them from a young age the effects of using plastic bags)
100,000 marine mammals die every year from ingestion of or entanglement in plastics Plastic Debris affects 86% of all turtle species world wide Turtles and other marine animals mistake plastic bags for jellyfish Plastic Bags breakup into small parts that end up in little creatures such as krill making the whole marine environment unhealthy
Signage When done the whaleâ€™s could be life size on the side of a building to give impact
Hand drawn look billboard to stand out
The Daily News WE NEED TO LET GO OF PLASTIC BEFORE WE LET GO OF NATURE

In 1988, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration researchers measuring pollution in the Sea of Japan predicted that plastic contamination would show up in much greater quantities in the Pacific Ocean. Researchers had already confirmed the presence of a new, giant soup of plastics, which the media eventually dubbed the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

trapped within one of five major oceanic gyres. On October 3, a Sea Education Association (SEA) tall ship with a state of the art laboratory and 38 researchers (including graduate students, educators, an environmental policy analyst, medical professionals, writers, scientists, and professional mariners), will sail due west from San Diego, into the heart of the North Pacific Gyre. The 134-foot Robert C. Seamans, may also encounter debris from the 2011 Japan tsunami. As the journalist on board, I will be sending back regular dispatches and photographs, detailing events as well as news about our findings. These dispatches will supplement videos sent by the ship filmmakers, and more detailed science, relayed by staff scientists on board, who will be studying the organisms—from microbial life to the larger barnacles and crabs—that live in the floating plastic soup. Through this initial web outreach, with weekly dispatches at National Geographic News Watch and daily dispatches at http://www.sea.edu/plastics/, we’ll share an intimate look at plastic pollution, as well as our 2,500-mile, six-week adventure to Hawaii.

In fact, with the exception of larger plastic that washes up on beaches, most of the plastic floating near the ocean surface is mere millimeters in size, undetectable by satellite, or even human eyes, unless the sea is flat calm. The plastic is suspended at surface level within the collision of currents that creates the 7 million square mile gyre, spinning clockwise like the eye of a hurricane in mid Pacific Ocean. Since little science has been performed, no one has yet accurately quantified the size of this soup—twice the size of the U.S., says the media; twice the size of Hawaii say some researchers. Nor do we know exactly what’s living on it, or how widely it has damaged the natural ocean ecosystem. According to Greenpeace, 267 species around the world are adversely affected by plastic marine debris that largely comes from land and gets
