The art of recycling

World famous Perceptual Artist, Michael Murphy, has collaborated with The Body Shop to unveil an incredible piece of artwork depicting a female Indian waste picker in London’s Borough Market (10th-11th May). The artwork is made using 1,500 recycled plastic items collected by waste pickers in Bengaluru and challenges the viewer to see the plastic crisis in a new light, given that waste pickers are the critical line of defence in stopping plastic from entering rivers and oceans!

Furthermore, the artwork also commemorates that The Body Shop has launched its first Community Trade recycled plastic from Bengaluru, India, in partnership with ‘Plastics For Change’.
