Artist Chris Jordon is interested in statistics. The only problem with numbers is that they are hard to relate to. What does it mean to you when you read, "2.5 million plastic bottles, the number used in the US every hour?" Not much.

Chris decided to try to put that number into a really cool visual demonstration that puts the whole thing in perspective.
