Smurfit Kappa’s Tannochside Plant donated the 1600 boxes which were used to create the huge arch at Glasgow Green. The gate took five days to build and over 450 people came together to assemble it.

Speaking about the initiatives, Smurfit Kappa CEO of Europe, Saverio Mayer said: “Smurfit Kappa has a strong tradition of supporting events in the communities in which it operates.

“It was a very rewarding experience to collaborate with such a talented artist to bring these breath-taking and important cultural pieces to life.”

The sustainable nature of the corrugated board used to build both pieces facilitated quick and easy recycling once they were dismantled.
