What does 60,000 Plastic Bags look like?

These photos taken by photographer Chris Jordan show 60,000 plastic bags–the number of bags used in the US every 5 seconds.  YIKES.

Thanks to coolinfographics.com for this art and the statistic.  Perfect data visualization for our current class project on plastic bag consumption.
