Locals in Sydney’s Bondi Beach woke up on World Environment Day to a 13-foot-tall poop emoji made from recycled plastic that Better Packaging Co. dumped (get it?) on the shore to bring attention to how much plastic sh*t ends up in the world’s oceans every 30 seconds.

In addition to bringing attention to the absurd amount of plastic, the sculpture also coincided with Better Packaging Co.’s launch of a range of packaging called POLLAST!C, which is made of recycled plastic collected from Southeast Asia.

Rebecca Percasky, cofounder of Better Packaging Co., said in a press release, “POLLAST!C demonstrates that we can find ways to recycle some of the most problematic plastic waste globally while simultaneously decreasing the presence of abandoned plastic in our environment.”
