The Dolphin that represents the movement “The Future of the Planet is not recyclable”, is traveling the Setúbal Peninsula. After the success at Almada Forum, as of August 7, it will be possible to visit this sculpture, which was produced from marine litter, at Casa da Baía in Setúbal, in an initiative promoted by Amarsul and the Municipality of Setúbal.
This living room in the Setúbal region includes an exhibition gallery and the Sado Estuary Bottlenose Dolphin Interpretative Center, created with the aim of enhancing and disseminating knowledge about the Sadina dolphin community.

Dolphin Technical Data
With approximately 2.5 m in height and around 150 kg, this work was developed by Xico Gaivota exclusively with unhandled waste fragments and without the use of any glue or paint during its production. All materials that the artist uses in his pieces are collected by himself from non-concessioned beaches on the Portuguese coast. The work developed is part of the “The Future of the Planet is not recyclable” campaign, which shows what happens to waste after it is separated in recycling bins and aims to raise awareness among the Portuguese, leading them to adopt appropriate environmental behavior in order to protect the planet. The process is simple: reduce, reuse and recycle.
