|The Plastic Whale Project|
A Sensational Cetacean
Thurston County Solid Waste's educational Plastic Whale Project encouraged people to use reusable bags by involving them in a large-scale art project. The result? A 32-foot gray whale made out of plastic bags and other trash. See the gray whale made out of 9,000 plastic bags, by 18 schools, 900 youth and adults at WSRA's 2014 Conference!
The plastic whale is a collaborative art project between Thurston County Solid Waste, the Procession of the Species, the YMCA’s after-school programs, Cascadia Research Collective, and many Thurston County schools.
