TRASHed Teaches Concert-Goers That Recycling Is Important

The TRASHed campaign uses art to challenge the way people and businesses view recycling and trash collection. TRASHed brings together the world’s best artists to turn ordinary recycle bins into inspiring works of art. After one look at the artwork that this campaign produces, you will never look at trash the same.

Fashion Peace, a youth-focused worldwide initiative that utilizes fashion, music, and art to address worldwide issues and a subsidiary of Global Inheritance, develops and executes the campaign. Artists such as Hunter S Thompson, Pinky (Lost), Mark The Cobrasnake and Mark X Farina have all contributed original recycling bin designs. The campaign hosts events across the United States, recently exhibiting at Warped Tour 2005 and Sundance 2006.
