Giant ‘Dead Whale’ Is Haunting Reminder of Massive Plastic Pollution Problem


Whale1Greenpeace Philippines recently created a real… whale of a public art piece (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves), to address one of the world’s most serious problems: plastic pollution.

In an effort to motivate the public to consider the impact this plastic trash has on our planet and illustrate why we need to recycle, use alternative biodegradable containers (like hemp or glass) when possible, and participate in local clean-up projects, Greenpeace Philippines created a powerful visual and global message about plastic pollution with a giant “Dead Whale” installation. The 50-foot long whale replica, was created entirely from plastic waste, and was ‘beached’ near the shoreline in Manila Bay.
