British artists Joe Rush and Alex Wreckage have created a Mount Rushmore-inspired sculpture of the seven G7 world leaders, constructed entirely from electronic waste. Unveiled on the eve of the G7 summit in Cornwall, Mount Recyclemore aims to draw attention to the need to reduce e-waste.

“We need to recycle stuff, we need to make stuff last,” said Rush via The Guardian. “We can’t just throw it into landfill. It’s not just a politician’s problem; it’s a problem that the human race has to deal with.”
