The huge environmental impact of paper production in the 1980s raised global concerns

This collage was produced in response to this issue using the disposable cut out paper circles from a paper punch to create an idyllic sunlit woodland view.

With the rise in environmental awareness due to the lobbying by environmental organisations and with increased government regulation there is now a trend towards sustainability. However this has now raised issues around monoculture and concerns over the ecological effects of these new practises.
