Artist Illustrates The Sad Reality Of Animal Cruelty And Shows How Factory Farming Harms Our Planet
Our ocean, land, and the array of species that call it home are succumbing to the poison of plastic. According to the United Nations, at least 800 species worldwide are affected by marine and land debris, and as much as 80 percent of that litter is plastic. It is estimated that up to 13 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each year—the equivalent of a rubbish or garbage truck load’s worth every minute.
And the ones that suffer the consequences of this are not only humans themselves, but also animals. To bring some awareness to the state of our planet and its inhabitants, Joan Chan, a comic artist from Hong Kong, started a comic series called “Just Comics.” “Just Comics” is a project that’s meant to educate people and bring awareness about the state of our planet and topics such as factory farming and animal cruelty. Joan hopes that her informative comics can help reduce the suffering of animals that are bred for meat, clothes, etc.
