Three illuminated giant fish made of discarded plastic bottles on a Brazilian beach



According to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), between 60 and 80 percent of debris in the sea is from plastic products. To encourage people to think about recycling as a means to protecting the earth’s limited natural resources, artists built for the UN conference three enormous fish out of discarded plastic bottles on Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At night, for special effects, the sculptures are illuminated from the inside with colorful blue and red LED twinkling lights which create a spectacular light show. Lovely!
