Thousands of plastic bottles from the airport were included in the art piece highlighting perils of plastic pollution in London. Stansted says it recycles 75% of its waste and sends none to landfill
The striking work, unveiled at ZSL London Zoo, aims to highlight the problem of plastic waste, includes thousands of bottles collected at London Stansted Airport in its construction.
The 16ft building, named Space of Waste, was created by London-based artist and architect Nick Wood using unrecycled plastic collected from all around London.
