Canadian artist Von Wong has created a huge plastic sculpture made from reclaimed plastic, including 168,037 straws. The sculpture was used to raise awareness about single-use plastic pollution and the impact it’s having on the world’s oceans, with scientists predicting there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.

Von Wong (Canada) and Zero Waste Saigon (Vietnam) organised the attempt with support from Starbucks, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on 22 January 2019 for the Largest drinking straw sculpture (supported).

  12. No straws in the ocean would be ideal but how realistic is it? Yes, you can make paper straws but that uses up trees and disintegrate after just a few sips prompting you to use more than the average straw causing more trees to be used for that purpose. There was a time when people were so concerned with using products made from trees that they began using plastic but now those people seem to use the trees they were trying to protect a few years back. A paper straw wouldn’t work with slurpees or icees and thicker type drinks. I know I’m going to get a lot of hate but until we find something better than those paper straws, we’re going to have to stick with plastic straws. Plastic straws are not the problem. The people who litter and neglect where they have put them are because they are the ones clogging up the ocean with them. Yes, they do get overlooked in recycling plants, but maybe there could be a designated trash bin in places for straws like a designated bin for recyclables. Yes, many people still may throw their straws away in the regular trash but at least that could be brought up in the mix for an alternative solution.

  13. I bet this wasn't in California

  24. We shouldn't be encouraging people to stop using straws, they are a valuable product and invented for a reason.

    We should be encouraging companies to make biodegradable straws so they can be recycled properly.
