The plastic bottle fish sculptures are made from salvaged plastic bottles. The installation was created for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, which happened earlier this year in June. Rio+20 is the short name for the event, named for the 1992 Earth Summit that took place 20 years ago in Rio. The Rio+20 sustainable development conference was centred around coming together internationally to build a sustainable future.

    I think its a crying shame on us stooppid humans that there are just so many plastic bottles in the sea in such a beautiful region of the planet. Bearing in mind all of the planet would be lush and beautiful f it weren’t for us stooopid humans. I hope it made a few people stop and think. Eradicate Ecocide – today..
