ENVRIRONMENT PLASTIC

Loro Parque Fundation inaugurates sculpture to raise awareness about plastic

La Laguna (Spain), Nov 28 (EFE).- Loro Parque Foundation presented on Thursday a sculpture made from waste collected from various points of the archipelago to demonstrate the "serious problem" caused by plastic in the environment and raise awareness about the issue.

The sculpture, created by Paolo Bonao and inspired by the Canary Island artist Néstor Martín-Fernández de la Torre, was motivated by the Loro Parque Foundation's policy to bring attention to THE plight of the environment, as well as the need to reduce the daily use of plastic.

The sculpture consists mainly of cans and plastic bottles and lids that have been collected by students from various education centers during the “Bye Bye Plastic” campaign, which has been promoted by Loro Parque Foundation in collaboration with the University of La Laguna (ULL).

FOOTAGE OF THE BYE BYE PLASTIC CAMPAIGN AND THE SCULPTURE IN LA LAGUNA. SOUND BITES OF LORO PARQUE FOUNDATION PRESIDENT CHRISTOPH KIESSLING, LORO PARQUE COMPANY PRESIDENT WOLFGANG KIESSLING AND UNIVERSITY OF LA LAGUNA RECTOR ROSA AGUILAR.

CHRISTOPH KIESSLING The idea is to ??keep it here as a warning that we have to reduce the use of plastic. It will be a very hard path to take. It will be much harder to remove the use of plastic than to introduce it. That is the path we have to take. I believe that our inventors in general should work on the concept of looking for a product that is like plastic but can be composted.

WOLFGANG KIESSLING And we have to have support from politicians and society to meet the objective. So it is important that all of us from the smallest participate in the fight, which we at the moment we are calling "Bye Bye Plastic" but also CO2 emissions. There are many aspects that we have to focus on at the moment. Today we celebrate what is “Bye Bye Plastic.”

ROSA AGUILAR Promote sustainability policy and encourage the people who are part of the university community so that they are more aware of electricity savings, recycling, waste disposal and, in general, everything that involves helping the conservation of our environment. The “Bye Bye Plastic” initiative has been promoted by the Loro Parque Foundation.”
