Large fish-shaped sculptures have appeared on Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Taking a closer look, the fish are created using discarded soda bottles, which look like tiny fish scales from afar. At night, colorful lights are projected on the installation, making the fish look as if they’re glowing.

The giant artwork was part of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, which was held in Rio between between 19-22 June. The sculptures serve as a reminder for beach-goers to recycle plastic bottles in order to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our oceans.
