Do you fancy trying these ice lollies? It’s not always obvious how polluted our oceans and waterways are, but a group of Taiwan students have created art pieces to catch our attention and to highlight sewage and general pollution problems. Polluted water was collected by National Taiwan University of Arts students, Hung I-chen, Guo Yi-hui and Cheng Yu-ti from around 100 locations around Taiwan and then made them into ice lollies. The polluted water was frozen into ice lolly shapes and wrapped in a polyester resin to preserve the captured rubbish, sewage, dirt and bacteria. Each lolly has a wrapper deisgned for it and indicates where the water pollution was collected from. This is definitely food for thought and highlights the important work of charities such as Surfers Against Sewage protecting beach users, marine creatures and our environment.
