For my entry, I wanted to come up with something that could get many teenagers to do something positive for the environment. I wanted something simple that anyone could put to action. So I focused on discouraging people to stop buying products with microbeads. My parody advertisement points out the truth about microbeads for those who might not know it. Through light humor, the piece educates without sounding like a lecture, something very important for appealing to teenagers. If this would come up on someone’s Instagram timeline, I really think they would avoid products with microbeads. It’s something simple enough for any one person to do, but through the power of social media, I think it could spread well and potentially have a massive impact.
