Arts and Earth Festival "Giant straw"

Giant drinking straws were placed in waterways, streams and rivers around Kuala Lumpur city. The waterway shown here, for example, is actually the once pristine Ampang River, but it is now so pulluted it looks like a sewage drain. A notice board attached to the giant straw calls the public to vote for compulsory recycling to curb water pollution. This excercise is in conjuction with the Arts and Earth Festival organised by the Global Environment Centre.
