A sculpture in the shape of a sailfish will go through several shopping centers owned by PortafolioInmobiliario to raise awareness about the disproportionate use of plastic.
The piece is 13 meters long and 4.5 meters high, for which 3,000 plastic bottles collected in Queposwere used. The sculpture will be in shopping centers between January 13th and April 13th.
Take note of the dates and places where it will be exhibited:
TerrazasLindora: From January 13 to February 16

“With this journey of the sailfish we call for action and more responsible practices with the environment for the well-being of all Costa Ricans,” said Ana Laura Rojas, Real Estate Portfolio Marketing Manager.
