This pole is also known as ‘We are what we eat’ and was influenced by the things we throw away.

This pole has had quite a bit of interest. It brings attention to the great amount of waste we are throwing away every day, this piece hopes to educate people on the importance of watching what is put into waste and look at possible recycling methods to reduce this waste.

This piece also brings attention to the amount of garbage in New Zealand, which is sitting in our landfills.

After seeing this pole people often comment that something has to be done – soon – with our garbage.
