The Government thought it would be a good idea to furnish COP26 (the world's largest environmental conference) with a whole load of new ‘eco’ furniture.
Gumtree thinks it would have been way better to just reuse what already exists, especially when there's a world full of it.
So in Glasgow Queen's Park (overlooking COP), we made an art attack using borrowed 2nd hand chairs. Then started a petition that could actually do some good.
Please sign it to force the government to consume more consciously.

Wouldn’t it have been an amazing message to the world about waste to have the most powerful people of the world sitting at COP26 on a load of 2nd hand chairs? Instead of making a load of new ‘eco’ stuff.
Oh and we got over 14,000 signatures on an actual petition.
