Strawpocalypse: Largest straw sculpture

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.
