Plas­tic for­est no throw-away idea

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Thou­sands of plas­tic bot­tles have been trans­formed into a Christ­mas for­est in Aotea Square.

The Re­claimed Christ­mas For­est has been de­signed to make peo­ple more aware of what they are throw­ing away this Christ­mas.

It is made up of 5000 re­cy­clable plas­tic milk and soft drink bot­tles shaped into a seven-me­tre-tall tree sur­rounded by 12 smaller trees.

The plas­tic for­est dis­play will re­main in the square un­til De­cem­ber 21.
