This "dead whale" will convince you to stop littering once and for all

It's a 50-foot art installation.


 

(SPOT.ph) Most of the Philippine archipelago is made up of water, making our marine life a big part of our ecosystem. With this fact, you'd think that Filipinos would be more caring of the ocean, but, sadly, we're not. We're actually one of the top plastic polluters in the entire world.

This month, Greenpeace Philippines sends a strong message to everyone about this critical situation through an art installation by Biboy Royong at the Sea Side Beach Resort in Naic, Cavite. It shows a 50-foot whale "killed" after taking in too much waste. The piece, made up of plastic from junk shops in the community, is on display until Sunday, May 14.

This goes with an online petition addressed to the ASEAN states "to take concrete measures against plastics pollution in the high seas to stop environmental degradation and dwindling of marine life in the region." If the world continues to produce millions of tons of plastic, it would only be a matter of time before whales and other marine animals start dying on our coasts.
