Over the past couple of months there has been a strange sight in Crystal Palace Park. A man walking around with bags of plastic bottles. What is he doing? Why is he doing this?

Well to highlight the amount of plastic we use in the modern age and the effect we have on the world around us we decided to make a mammoth out of plastic bottles.

Why you ask? Well humans are the reason why Mammoths died out!

Using a sketch as inspiration and an old table to build our mammoth around, a small team of four big kids and 15 actual kids set to work!

Lots of fun was had by all though and we kept all the bottles. We are going to try again in spring when the weather improves and our designer is back from his holidays!
