Ahead of the G7 or Group of Seven summit, a Mount Rushmore-like scripture featuring faces of G7 summit leaders has been erected using electronic waste in UK's Cornwell. The e-waste mountain has been named Mount Recyclemore and its purpose is to highlight improper e-waste disposal and the harm it causes to the environment.
The sculpture is placed at a highly-visible location across the water from the Carbis Bay Hotel, where the summit is due to take place this weekend. The purpose is to captivate attention of these leaders so that they work towards more efficient e-waste management.
It was created by sculpture Joe Rush, who was commissioned to create the artwork by musicMagpie. It is a British online retailer buying and selling refurbished electronics.
Rush said that the it was made to emphasise the need of making easily reusable and recyclable electronic products.
The leaders depicted in the sculpture are seven G7 leaders, which include UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Italy's Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The G7 summit is scheduled to take place in Cornwell, USA on June 11,2021.
