A campaign highlighting the effects on the environment of the plastic bag as part of campaigning for Plastic Bag Free World and ‘Plastic bag free day.' To counter the well known ‘Bag for life’ initiative, we created ‘Bag for death.' With so many marine deaths attributed to plastic bags, the aim was to stigmatize single use bags by labelling them in an overly-dramatic way.

Print advertisement created by One Black Bear, United Kingdom for Plastic Bag Free World, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.


320,000 plastic bags are choking our planet every second. Avoid further suffocation. Keep plastic bags away from people, animals and the planet. Choose a bag for life, not a bag for death.

Not bad very clean art direction and copy. Not sure though the broader massage of choking the planet comes out at 1st glance. The top pf mind take out is they are dangerous to us directly.
