-Drug waste

At first, I wanted to do the pill bottle waste. I only think that only plastic can pollute the water. However, after I did a lot of research and talked with Rebeca, I found out the dumped pills also pollute the water. Most people do not know how to recycle expired pills. Usually, people dropped into the toilet. Pills dissolving in the water will pollute rivers and ocean. Many fishes and other ocean animals live under chemical pollution environment.

 

Thus, I started to design my sculpture as a bottle dispenser. Inside the container, there are different kinds of pills. All the pills are dissolved in the water. I put "DRINK ME" around the dispenser. Some students try to drink the "pills water" because dispenser's outside looking is seemly like strawberry lemonade. When the students come close to the "strawberry lemonade," they find out it is gross inside.
