This week, Pornhub launched a dirty campaign to clean up beaches

This week on Dezeen, Pornhub launched its Dirtiest Porn Ever campaign to remove plastic from the oceans, and BMW released a Vantablack version of its X6 coupe.

Launched as part of the Pornhub Cares initiative, the film aims to demonstrate "how plastic and waste can ruin an otherwise beautiful scene", and is accompanied by a website that advises its viewers how they can help avoid single-use plastics ending up in the ocean.
