Plastic pollution is by far the biggest concern of every conscious person in this world and almost all professionals are trying to play their role in curbing this disastrous problem. Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm STUDIOKCA has also become a part of this movement by installing the 38-foot-tall whale sculpture made out of over 5 tons of plastic recovered from Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
The 10,000-pound whale was created with the vision of giving a reminder to the public about the severe situation that we are facing as a global community and to raise awareness that even this huge sculpture is tiny as compared to the 150 million tons of plastic that is floating in the sea just because of our careless consumption. The founders of STUDIOKCA gave a statement supporting the campaign against plastic use, “Right now there is 150 million tons of plastic swimming in the ocean, our oceans, the oceans we share. Pound for pound that is more plastic waste swimming in the ocean than there are whales. So an opportunity like this to show the type of plastic and the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans is really important.”
