July 1, 201333 Comments

Global Inheritance is now accepting submissions for TRASHed Coachella 2014. Whether you’re world famous or an aspiring artist, seize the opportunity to showcase your artwork to over tens of thousands of festival goers all while helping keep the Empire Polo grounds clean.

Fifty artists will be chosen by Ursus Polaris , and each will receive a Coachella pass for the weekend of their choice. Ursus Polaris will also offer a second Coachella pass to the artist selected to design one of four featured bins: Pedley Mangler, Chuck Norris, Grumpy Cat and Saving Nature Tour.

Sending us a link to your TRASHed Coachella art submission or website is preferable. If you’re planning to send us images as attachments, PLEASE don’t send any emails larger than 2.0mb or we will feed you piece by piece to Recyclosaurus Rex. A great way to send large files is via – which won’t cost a dime unless you’re planning to send a 3TB portfolio (again, please don’t).

Email all art submissions to

The best way to get selected is to order and redesign a 6 inch mini bin using the concept for your Coachella bin design. Only Fedex shipping and mini bin/mini bin box cost ($6.00) will apply.

After Coachella, TRASHed Coachella bins will be donated to schools across the United States. If you are interested in securing TRASHed bins for your school, email us ::

    Is it a requirement to purchase a mini bin or can we just send our artwork via email and facebook?

    I have not received my bins what do you suggest I do? Is there a template I can print? (of the bin)

      Hi Jose, We received your order last night. We are shipping it today, so you should be receiving it by Saturday or Monday.
      We don’t have a template as for now, but it’s a great idea! We’ll try create one for the near future.
      Looking forward to seeing your art!
