(last Mermay update!)
Mermaids have been dealing with our crap since ancient times. 'We used to find treasures,' they say, 'but now it's all rubbish, worthless things, that kill our fish friends and confuse our planet. Our home is warmer and warmer. So even if we try to stay positive, and comb our hair with your eating tools like The Little Mermaid used to do, please... Stop the madness. Clean the Oceans, think of us!'.
I started this series with the hope that I would make someone, somewhere think a little about our oceans and how full of rubbish we are making them. Without clean water, this whole system is going down. So hopefully by seeing how silly it looks for a mermaid to make a skirt out of plastic bags we will think next time we discard some plastic. Imagine how we would deal with air as full of (visible) trash as the oceans are!! Water covers 2/3 of this planet and we are using it as a dumping site! What will we do when they're full?? Anyway, enough mermaids for now! Thanks for watching this space, I hope you liked them!
