What We Can Do With Plastic Waste, Can You Imagine

5 months ago 205

Garbage, especially plastic, has been a problem since the 1950s. We keep producing more and more of it, but we cannot seem to find a way to dispose of it effectively. Many people believe that the only solution is to bury it in landfills or burn up all these plastic bottles, wrappers, bags, food containers, etc. In the worst scenarios, people have gotten used to dumping them in animals’ natural habitats, especially in the ocean.

The truth, however, is that plastic takes a very long time to decompose. One estimate states that a plastic bag takes 400 years before it eventually decomposes. For this reason alone, people are beginning to adopt the “reduce” part of the famous 3R’s of environmentally-friendly living: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

This creative artist has found his own way of recycling plastic for the better by doing artistic work with plastic.

Artur Bordalo, a.k.a “Bordalo II,” is a Lisbon-born fine artist who creates sculptures out of garbage while exploring the relationship between humans and animals.
