New Zealand’s renowned clean and green image is under threat. One of its major export earners, the dairy industry, creates problems for the environment. It produces greenhouse gas emissions, pollutes both surface and groundwater, and can threaten ecologically important areas, such as wetlands and forests. While it may be possible to minimize these impacts, eliminating them completely will be difficult as long as demand for milk and its products remains. In ‘Clean and Green,’ green fields transition to dry earth representative of climate change, which in turn metamorphoses into drinking glasses, perhaps full of milk or contaminated water, which flows from the streams.
