80% of plastic leakage into the oceans originates on land.
Stop trash before it pollutes our waters.
TRASH project is an artwork that inspires mindfulness about waste creation.
Our mission is a campaign for urban beautification and environmental awareness.
SUPPORT THE PROJECT
We envision a world where people notice the alternatives to the ordinary, and realize that change is simple and inspiring.
Reduce your consumption and lower your contribution to the trash problem.
By activating public space with sculptures of color, TRASH sparks awareness about waste, sanitation, and consumption. The daily task of creating waste is mundane, thoughtless, yet necessary. It does not have to be this way. Instead, it can be related to as a social practice that is expressive, informed, and sustainable.
We support and organize events to foster a positive way to care for the environment. Ocean plastic pollution is starting to critically affect our marine food chain, coastline habitats, and clean water sources. Clean ups are a direct solution to waste management. Let's all participate actively in habits that keep our earth and oceans clean.
WE ARE ALL CONNECTED
TRASH project is open to new ideas. We explore the role of trash in society and encourage activism through collaborative and educational activities. Solutions will come by working together to reimagine our waste culture.
TRASH project started as an interactive idea to promote urban beautification and environmental awareness by organizing an art practice around the common task of trash disposal. It was first presented in 2008 as a series of alternative media interventions titled TRASH Maximalism, a transformation of standard trash piles into self-generating sculptures of vivid color.
