Giant Plastic Garbage Monster Looms Over Beach
A giant sculpture made of garbage looms over a beach in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The statue weighs 8 tons, it’s over 40 feet tall, and it probably doesn’t smell very good. That’s because it’s made of trash and plastic waste, like bottles, wrappers and bags. Looking a bit like a garbage Voltron, it’s a curiosity for beachgoers in this tourist town. It also highlights the massive amount of plastic waste that is created in such a short period of time.
