Did you know that 50% of the plastic that we use is only used once before being thrown away?
"From there, it takes approximately 450 years for a single plastic bottle to degrade. Virtually every single piece of plastic that has ever been created, still exists on the planet today and if we do nothing, by 2050 - there will be more plastics than fish in the sea. But we can change that," are the words of an artist Benjamin Von Wong who came along with a special idea - a project called Mermaids hate plastic.
He and his team of volunteers have given us mermaids swimming in a sea of more than 10.000 plastic bottles! Bottles were borrowed from Tomra, a waste management centre and over the course of a few days, a small army of volunteers came to help de-label, un-cap and clean them and than the magic happened. With a help of a group of amazing people who believe that change happens when individuals come together to fight for something they believe in.
