Natural Beauty

Natural Beauty is a journey of human impact on the planet. Beginning with our own existence, we look back to our origin, asking questions about our creation and existence. Exploring Earth’s life and natural beauty, we examine our persistent impact on this place we call home.


Human consumerism has affected the environment and is taking its toll on our planet. We take a closer look at plastic pollution and its effect on our oceans. Our current trajectory for plastic consumerism and waste causes major concern for the future of our planet.


Now more than ever it is important for us to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Together, we have the power to change the way we interact with our environment.
