Wow, I love this whole campaign. Great execution of the photographs. I think each one was done brilliantly.

I would change the copy though

It simply blows everything comparable out of the water and for now I challenge you to find otherwise.

First of all, I think that this is a brilliant and simple approach. I feel that many people here just nitpick and pull apart ads in general. I hardly doubt that a bleach bottle will make the ad more "impactful". Rubbish is rubbish regardless of what it is, so all if it is relevant. Secondly, the line that Joel123 suggested does not improve the ad what so ever, it merely reworks the headline words in a different way and makes it grammatically wrong. I wish people would give constructive feedback and criticism here and not just "nothing new", "poor photoshop", "student work" and "I've seen it before". Come on guys!

I agree...the percieved "impact" isn't relevant here as the line already maintains that even a "little bit" of rubbish in the sea is quite a lot. If people feel that the imagery isn't upto the mark then, they're way off the mark.
