The Plastic in Your Head

Updated: Nov 3, 2019

Worried about plastic on the floor of the Mariana Trench? How about the noise - auditory or visual - besieging your everyday life?

How about the noise inside your head?

Silence is an endangered species, it’s on the verge of extinction. It’s become a luxury in today’s noise-polluted, outer and inner worlds.

What about quiet places where you can be with yourself and listen to what is going on inside? Is it breaking waves of a stormy ocean, moving sand dunes propelled by the wind, the cacophony of an equatorial rain-forest?

What’s going on inside you?
