Brain Teaser Challenges You To Find The Jellyfish Among The Plastic

This Friday marks Earth Day, an annual event dedicated to raising awareness for the need of environmental protections, and with 70% of the Earth being made up of water, what better day to highlight the need to protect our oceans.

An infuriating new puzzle has been leaving Brits stuck scratching their heads as they struggle to find the hidden jellyfish among a sea of plastic bags.

The brainteaser was put together by sustainable toilet paper and kitchen roll brand, Oceans Plastic Free, in the spirit of Earth Day this Friday as the brand hope to bring awareness to the importance of marine biodiversity.

According to Oceans Plastic Free most people are able to spot the hidden item in just under half a minute, although the record is as little as 10 seconds - can you do any better?

Simon Howard from Oceans Plastic Free says:
“With an estimation of 13 million tons of plastic ending up in the ocean each year, it causes a huge impact on our marine life. Visible impacts include ingestion, suffocation and entanglement.

“Marine wildlife cannot differentiate plastic from food sources and animals like seabirds, whales, fish and turtles end up dying of starvation as their stomachs become filled with plastic.

“Brain teasers such as these can help people visualise how plastic pollution is in fact impacting our marine biodiversity. Unfortunately the current state of our oceans and seas at the moment means we are seeing huge diversity in the types of plastic in the water instead of in marine life. In an ideal world it would be harder to spot the plastic amongst the fish rather than the fish amongst the plastic ”

And to highlight that point the brand has released a second brain teaser, showcasing a sea thriving with diverse marine life and challenging readers to spot the plastic bag.
