The good people of Leith Hill recently employed our Masks for an anti-oil drilling event and we are happy to report a successful mission. These images, sent to us by a unique entity called Ackroyd and Harvey, show a peaceful, progressive gathering of environmentally conscious residents protecting their land from the big oil companies that desecrate areas of natural beauty for short term profiteering. The implications of this intrusive activity include; water supply corruption, air pollution, desecration of the beauty of the Green Belt and the further endangerment of many Red List Species in the area...

 

 

"The event was organised in defiance of plans to drill for oil on Leith Hill, an area of outstanding natural beauty" - Dan Ackroyd

 

 

Ackroyd and Harvey is known for their unique photographic works which utilise the natural pigment of chlorophyll in making complex photographs. These artistic works have won numerous high profile awards and have been showcased in many prestigious venues; including the inauguration of the David Attenborough Building last year, which is one of the highest accolades achievable in the realm of environmentally-conscious art. The image below is from an exhibition entitled Life on Life, which was shown in Paris and featured their award-winning photographic work with the light-sensitivity of chlorophyll.

Halloween is one of our favourite times of the year, but there are some things that need to change. 15,000 metric tons of costumes are likely to be thrown away this year in the USA alone. Cheap Halloween costumes are made of 90% plastic, so when you start doing the sums it becomes frightening very quickly. Check out our creature feature on how to reduce Halloween waste this year.
