In pictures: Giant PG Tips monkey floats down the Thames

A six-meter PG Tips monkey has set sale down the Thames in a bid to promote the brand's green tea.


The two-storey topiary was crafted from 110,486 fabricated green tea leaves, and was constructed to show the giant monkey enjoying a cup of PG tips Green Tea.

He floated past iconic London structures, including The Shard, Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge.

PG tips Green Tea and Monkey were inspired to create this  ‘vision in green’ to highlight a forthcoming ‘Green Paper’ report to be published by PG tips Green Tea.

The ‘Green Paper’ has identified the presence of green, from workspaces to living room walls, as having a direct impact on boosting positivity and productivity due to the primal association to nature and open spaces.
