The Snake of Plastic Waste
Delighted to be working with the wonderful young people from of Dublin 8 - St Francis CBS, The Iveagh trust and the YMCA in conjunction with St Patrick's Cathedral
on a new arts project highlighting the sheer lunacy of our usage of Single Use Plastic.
Each of the 4 items in the daily lunches provided to the students comes individually wrapped in plastic (health and safety requirements) and together we are collecting it (and their crisp packets) over a 4 week period to create a 30 ft Plastic snake!
How can we possibly hope to teach young people to use less plastic if we are giving them no alternatives?
