Standing atop a mountain of rubbish with a plastic sachet in their hand and wind in their hair, the young person in our Rubbish statue encapsulates our world’s rubbish problem…
The one person who dies every 30 seconds due to diseases caused by mismanaged waste. The piles of waste many are forced to live among, as 2 billion people around the world have no safe way to dispose of their rubbish.
We’re now facing mountains of plastic pollution, dumped or burnt around the world. But Jesus told his followers that even the smallest amount of faith can move mountains.
So, this summer, our Rubbish statue is touring Christian events and church festivals around the UK to share our Rubbish Campaign. And it will invite those who see it to join together in prayer and action, to demand an end to plastic pollution and this rubbish problem.
