Incredible creative sculpture made from thousands of recycled straws
Canadian artist Von Wong has created a huge plastic sculpture made from reclaimed plastic, including 168,037 straws.
The sculpture was used to raise awareness about single-use plastic pollution and the impact it’s having on the world’s oceans, with scientists predicting there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.
installation was recognized by the Guinness World Records as the “largest straw sculpture“: 3.3 meters high, 8 meters long and 4.5 meters wide. Visitors can walk within this wave, this « parting of the plastic sea” in two parts. A stroll to understand the sad current situation as to the huge amounts of plastics dumped into the ocean.
