PES AND CORONA LAUNCH STRIKING EARTH DAY FILM.
For Earth Day 2019, Corona and Parley for the Oceans partnered up with Oscar-nominated animator - PES - to illustrate the positive impact of clean-ups and the need to avoid single-use plastic. The memorable stop motion animation ‘The Fish’ poignantly uses washed-up marine plastic waste to assemble a robot-like fish that is eventually eaten by an opportunistic seagull - Watch here - . The film uses PES’ unique style to deliver a strong message designed to bring the critical issue of marine plastic pollution to a global audience. Each year 100,000 marine mammals and turtles are killed by marine pollution and reportedly, 90 percent of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs. Yet 8 million metric tons of plastic pollution still enter the world’s oceans every year – the equivalent of a dump truck every minute. Earth Day provides a moment to reflect on the devastating impact this plastic has on wildlife and our own well-being. If you'd like to help, join one of the many clean-ups we're organizing around the world.
