Toronto has a big plastic problem. Actually, the whole world does. Right now on St. Clair West there are larger than life plastic replicas of water bottles and disposable cups. These almost 30 foot tall replicas have been touring the world to make people think before they use single-use plastics.
Natural Plasticity's Bottle Project has placed a giant water bottle and straw at 2 St Clair West and a giant cup with a green straw at 55 St. Clair West. The green straw and cup look like they would hold a summer Starbuck's drink.
We were already aware of how much plastic pollution is created in our city every day. You don't have to go far to find discarded garbage in the streets. There is still hope. A lot of places in the city are using paper straws which is great. We also bring our own reusable cups for coffee and thermoses for water when we are out and about. Brita filtered water for when we are at home.
The Bottle Project will be on display until May 1st. Take a look at the big inflatable plastic and then see how you can reduce the amount of waste that you create. Think before you drink.
