The Nespresso coffee pods are here to stay. The plastic and aluminium they are made of is not biodegradable and, though the efforts to recycle and upcycle them, the impact of this practical way of drinking coffee is taking its toll on the environment. Artist Alex Aebi' s collection of insects made of recycled plastic pods shows us an alternative way in which this waste can inhabit our natural world. Peculiar image of the week via Guilliiame Perret.
