This ad showing a father preparing for a family trip to the beach, was created by the Stormwater Program Graphics Support in 1998 for English and Spanish newspapers.

The poster depicts a father carelessly changing his motor oil while his daughter anxiously waits for a weekend trip to the beach. Just underneath, the impact that his actions have on the environment is clearly shown as an oil plume spreads to a littered seabed.

Artwork created by Oscar Amaro
