Water contamination is a serious issue that affects millions of people around the world. It is a problem that can have devastating consequences for human health, ecosystems, and the economy. The recent leak of 8,000 gallons of a water-based latex finishing solution from the Trinseo Altuglas chemical facility in Bucks County, near Philadelphia, is a perfect example of how water contamination can occur and how it can impact the environment. We used this as inspiration for the content in the TikTok video and our diorama. We conveyed the idea that human beings’ littering is the reason for water contamination because contamination of vast bodies of water isn’t typically a natural but a man-made issue.
