The Tackle of the Tentacle

The Tackle of the Tentacle

In 2010 we collected 40.000 used plastic bags and 7.500 used plastic cups from kindergardens, primary schools, high schools, faculties and random people from Ljubljana to build a plastic bag monster with big tentacles. The message got through and people were more aware of the problem. The supermarkets put them away for a while. But nowadays the trend is slowly going backwards. We do tend to forget stuff. But when we are in stores – I still think that we should ask for the bag, not that a cashier insists on it.
