“We Have a Drinking Problem” it is the title of the campaign we launched today in the FAO Headquarters to put in evidence the high number of plastic bottles produced everyday and the need to reduce this volume pretty soon. An art installation has been mounted in the Atrium to give people the perception of the the volume of plastic we produce during a working week.
It must be clear to everyone that a response from us is needed and some behaviours have to change to decrease our impact on the environment. As first answers we can:
- drink water using refillable cups, and
- use the water fountains scattered around the buildings can help a lot.
A big thank to all the people who helped in the preparation and production of the installation. In particular, a special remark for my friend Architect Claudia Fano of BlueA Studio of Rome for the design of the bottles installation.
Have a look at the gallery on the installation.
