Globally, over 80% of our wastewater flows back to nature untreated.

Three design students from the National Taiwan University of the Arts, Hong Yi-chen, Guo Yi-hui, and Zheng Yu-di created these popsicles as a graduation project “100% Polluted Water Popsicles“, to raise awareness about pollution in water systems.

The water comes from 100 different polluted water sources in Taiwan, ranging from rivers to ports to ditches. Along with water, the popsicles contain bugs, dirt, dead fish, cigarette butts, nets, oil and plastic waste in various forms, such as wrappers, bottle caps and miscellaneous packaging.
