photoblog image Bruges Plastic Whale

Bruges Plastic Whale

This installation is made out of over five tons of plastic waste, floating on the surface of the pacific ocean. The whale was chosen to underline the colossal nature of the problem - 150 million tons of plastic waste still remains out in our oceans.

This is a "Wow", Ayush.
Nice picture! Great subject matter also
Terrific image, Ayush.
Plastics are so impossible... you absolutely cannot live in the modern world without encountering plastic in almost everything you do. And disappointingly - most of the plastics we use cannot, actually, be recycled.
Jolie photo et magnifique sculpture qui émerge de l'eau.
Bonne journée Ayush

Every town should have one as a reminder of what we need to do

This thing is making an important point Ayush. Well taken!
Sadly, not all countries are onboard with the idea of preserving the human race, or our home... sad
We saw it from the water, Ayush, and were appalled by what it stood for. (sigh) Thanks for drawing attention to the tragedy.

Like Ginnie said, we saw this in Bruges. But then my question is, we "all" yell bloody murder about all the pollution but how come that people still throw things away, how mane times do we find dumped waste every were it does not belong... we have to start with ourselves and keep showing these pictures and tell these stories....

That is a clever sculpture designed to awaken awareness of the problem Ayush.
wow! at the whale, and the message!
I appreciate the meaning of the Whale but somehow it looks really out of place in the centre of lovely Bruges.
Our whole province is about to ban single use plastic.
I like the image too.

Brings back a lot of memories for me. For instance the nice coffee shop down the road to the left.
Its a stark reminder Ayush.You captured it well.
