The Earth Is Dying
Now, I may sound overdramatic, but that’s an accurate statement. Every little thing we do is slowly polluting our world. So, that means we are getting more sick than usual as the pollution in the air is rising.
Don’t get me wrong. We are constantly fighting it. There are many organisations and individuals raising awareness about it, even though not many people are paying attention to them.
You can’t make a difference alone.
Not unless every person changes their habits including you and me.
That’s what these three students, named Hung I-can, Guo Yi-hui, and Cheng Yu-ti started. From the National Taiwan University of Arts, they wanted to raise awareness on the subject of polluted waters in Taiwan.
However, they did not approach the topic of pollution in the traditional sense.
They made popsicles of the sewage water found in the polluted waters of Taiwan. At first glance, they even look like some Popsicles you would be served at an expensive restaurant.
They would leave you very sick if you even took a bite from one of them. They wanted to raise awareness about how pollution is rising in the water as the economy grows.
So they recreated all the different popsicles with transparent polyester resin.
The three students made different individual wrappers for every Popsicle, which represented the region the polluted water came from.
This project which goes by the name, Polluted Water Popsicles project has garnered a lot of attention. As It should have. Some of the Popsicles created by them are as follows.
This Project seems to have opened many people’s eyes to the dangers of pollution in general. You can also check out more info about the project on their Facebook page.
