Trash Awareness Project

Idea:

After cleaning the Lowell canals this morning, I’m disgusted by the trash pulled. I want to install a small garden and playground designed with only trash! Cig butts for mulch etc. Then I’d like to post a sign that states “Welcome home, enjoy! This trash was picked from the canals to design this park. Please recycle.”

Benefit:

  1. This was my submission. I’m so excited to see it as an option. Please keep me posted on the project I didn’t receive an email with additional info

  2. I wonder how feasible this is. Wouldnt a sculpture be more likely, or is that what you mean. Playground equipment has to be clean and safe…

    • I am not certain of the original intent, but our understanding was that this would be more like a temporary sculpture meant to provoke a reaction, not literal play equipment. I don’t think we’d want kids playing in cigarette butts! Definitely something to discuss on Thursday.
