The Glastonbury Festival is a Performance Arts Festival that attracts roughly 150,000 revelers annually. Funds generated are typically donated to good causes, and Greenpeace is one of them. This year the advocacy group chose a marine theme for what was also their 40th anniversary. Viridor Recycling donated the CDs (that are otherwise sent to China to be repurposed into plasma TVs) which were attached to a hazel pole frame and held in place with woven willow – all natural materials that are easily recycled.

Like on the crazy CD dune featured here previously, the fish “scales” shimmered during the day and glowed at night, creating a fun and inspiring shelter from the notoriously soggy English weather.
