‘RubbishDuck’ – raising awareness of plastic waste in our waterways

Now a post that will raise a smile!!

Ferdinand Povel and Essi Salonen, 2  students from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London have come up with a novel way of raising awareness of the plastic waste in our waterways by designing and building the ‘RubbishDuck’ – made out of 2000 plastic bottles all found in the Regent’s Canal.  The canal is  a valuable bit of rare open space in the King’s Cross area and the video explains the concept behind their innovative art installation…… ….

‘RubbishDuck’  is now floating in front of the Filling Station, on the Regent’s Canal at King’s Cross  where it will stay for the rest of the month, before it is moved to the Pleasure Gardens, east London for August.

    The recently formed Canal & River Trust is made up of people who care about our canals and rivers. We work with individuals and communities who also care. Together we can keep our canals and rivers clean, tidy and enjoyable as havens for people and wildlife. Find out more at
