>> Giant Fish

The Botafogo Beach in Rio de  Jeniero is home to an art installation featuring these incredible fish sculptures made from discarded plastic bottles. The slogan on a sign beside the installation loosely translates to, “recycle your attitude”, and is part of an initiative to raise awareness for the recently completed United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, affectionately called the Rio+20. The Rio+20 (or the Rio 2012) Conference focuses on sustainable development aimed at reconciling the economic and environmental goals of the global community. The conference took place from June 13-20 2012 in Brazil as the 10th anniversary of the 2002 world summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg.
