One month of disposable plastics.
One giant octopus.

Designed by Plastic-Free Me Director and artist Harriet Lily, and created with the help of our Plastic-Free Youth in Leeds: The Forever Octopus is a stunning visual representation of how much disposable plastic we use in just one month. First installed at The Human Aquarium Exhibition in Leeds, people of all ages enjoyed the stunning display from the 4m x 4m octopus, suspended from the ceiling. It is fitted with lights and designed in a way which encourages people to touch, feel and interact with the sculpture: providing a full sensory experience.

The Forever Octopus combines my two absolute passions: art and conservation. I wanted to create something which could be simply enjoyed as an artwork, or as a call-to-action to reduce the amount of plastic we use in our daily lives.
