Greenpeace activists dumped half a tonne of household rubbish outside 10 Downing Street as they called for a ban on the export of plastic waste. The 625kg pile of rubbish is, according to Greenpeace, the same volume that the UK exports every 30 seconds.

As part of the activation, Greenpeace commissioned a Boris Johnson mask which a campaigner wore outside Downing Street while the delivery of rubbish was made.
This project gave Plunge a great opportunity to showcase how to create a lightweight mask from environmentally friendly materials. The clay from the sculpt of Boris Johnson’s head will all be recycled and reused here at the workshop. More importantly though, the main form of the mask was fabricated using brown paper tape.
