Photographer Chris Jordan uses his photography to bring awareness to a problem that many people have never heard about — baby albatross dying in the middle of the Pacific due to their parents feeding them plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Jordan finds the carcasses of the baby birds scattered around the Midway Islands and captures how they died filled with plastic. Watching this video about his work will probably make you think twice about how you use and dispose of plastic.
