"Trash shouldn't define our culture."
Litter is an on-going problem. And in Africa’s burgeoning consumerist societies, the more we buy, the more trash we produce. To raise awareness for Greenpeace, we asked two young local artists to create African masks out of trash. Masks are familiar icons, and to see them like this produces a powerful image of how pollution can re-define our culture. The masks were then photographed on children to hint at the impact of pollution on future generations. Aside from running ads in Namibian newspapers and on street poles, we also displayed posters in schools and colleges to inspire youngsters to rethink how they dispose of trash.
Trash shouldn’t define our culture.
