What a cow!

Finally finished my Dairy Crest commission to highlight the waste produced from plastic milk containers, which is being used to promote their new Jugit system which creates 75% less waste than conventional milk cartons.

There will be better photos when it is in position in Morrisions Taunton, but at 2.5m long it takes up most of our garden! Which is

currently a building site, so excuse the rubble behind it! Anyway, it is being picked up next week to graze in its new supermarket pasture, but until the big launch here are some sneaky peak shots of my plastic cow!

It is entirely made from milk cartons, from the horns to the tail! Held together with wire, glue and painted with spray paint and some old enamel paint from the garage.  I hope it stays up, helps deliver the message and makes people smile!

    HOLY COW! That’s brilliant. And like Pip I was impressed that you’d given it a bottom hole too! Are you hoping for some manure for the garden 🙂

    Should get loads of attention – well done for ‘sticking’ at it!
