We’re All In This Together
We Want Your Waste!
This is a partnership project between me and Mass Design Group an architectural firm based in Poughkeepsie. They are a non-profit organization who is committed to sustainability.
Did you know that the average American produces 5 lbs of waste every day? That’s 233 million tons per year!
It’s easy to think that we can just forget about what we throw in our trash cans and put out on our curbs, but this stuff doesn’t just disappear. Most of it end up accumulating in landfills or incinerators, taking up land and leaching into our water.
We are all embedded in a culture of use and disposal, but what if we started to think before we throw? What if we became more intentional about the amount of stuff we place in the trash every day?
You are invited to become part of a new sculptural installation that raises awareness about the issue of waste. Next time you’re thinking about putting something in the trash, STOP! - bring it to us instead and contribute to a stunning piece of art for the community! Please lightly clean the items before drop off.
