A giant turtle, 30-foot-long, 25-foot-wide and 20-foot-tall, has come up on Elliot’s Beach in Besant Nagar, as part of Times of India's Unplastic India initiative in association with artist Gowtham of Art Kingdom, to discourage people from opting for single-use plastic. Gowtham said more than 600kg of plastic and 700kg of iron waste were used to make the turtle. Visitors can walk into the turtle and access pamphlets and posters against single-use plastic. The turtle will be on display till June 30.
