Greenpeace Philippines has made a powerful statement in their fight against plastic pollution by creating and installing a massive art piece in the form of a giant whale at the Sea Side Beach Resort in Naic, Cavite. This eye-catching installation, measuring an astounding 50 feet in length, is entirely constructed from plastic pollution, serving as a stark reminder of the devastating impact our plastic waste has on the ocean.
The intention behind this remarkable art piece is to awaken the public to the urgent need for action. Greenpeace Philippines urges viewers to listen to the poignant wake-up call of the dead whale and to take a closer look at the detrimental effects of plastic pollution on our oceans. Each piece of plastic incorporated into the installation tells a story of negligence, indifference, and the dire consequences of our actions.
By showcasing this awe-inspiring creation, Greenpeace Philippines aims to inspire a collective response, encouraging individuals and communities to reject the use of single-use plastics and adopt more sustainable practices. They hope that the sheer magnitude of the installation and its powerful symbolism will serve as a catalyst for change, igniting a sense of responsibility within the public to actively participate in the #RefusePlastic movement.
The giant whale art piece will remain on display at the Sea Side Beach Resort until May 14, providing ample opportunity for people to witness its impactful presence firsthand. Greenpeace Philippines invites all visitors to contemplate the installation’s profound message and reflect on the role they can play in combating plastic pollution.
Together, we can heed the call of the dead whale, raise awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution, and work towards a future where our oceans are free from the suffocating grip of plastic waste. Let us embrace the power of collective action and strive to make a lasting difference for the health and preservation of our precious marine ecosystems.

Plastic is a material made to last forever, yet 33 percent of all plastic, such as single-use water bottles, bags, and straws, are used just once and thrown away. Over 260 species, including invertebrates, turtles, fish, seabirds, and mammals, have been reported to ingest or become entangled in plastic debris, resulting in impaired movement and feeding, reduced reproductive output, lacerations, ulcers, and death.
