plastic bag sightings in chicago
Design for Social Change Spring 2020 SAIC
 
How many plastic bags does one person encounter per day? The data was collected by closely observing my surroundings while doing regular activities such as sitting at a café and walking—each bag seen was plotted in a 24-hour clock every hour. Reusable bag sightings were also noted for comparison. A total of 511 plastic bags were seen in one day, with spikes during lunch and after-work hours.
