TRASHed :: Art of Recycling
Reinventing Recycling Through Art!
Hunter S Thompson designed a TRASHed recycling bin for Winter X Games shortly before passing away.
Over 2,435 artists have redesigned recycling bins for the TRASHed Campaign over the past 8 years.
Global Inheritance collaborated with recording artist “The Roots” to create a Feed Your Roots bin composting campaign.
About The Program
The TRASHed :: Art Of Recycling campaign is an ongoing recycling education program that redefines the way people view recycling and trash collection. Global Inheritance arranges the artistic redesign of recycling bins, then integrates the bins at high visibility events to encourage recycling and provide additional outlets for people to appreciate the artwork. Live paintings often occur at events in addition to the ongoing display of artist bins created beforehand.
TRASHed recycling bins are donated to deserving schools after the events. This ensures these works of art continue to have a valuable lifespan beyond just one event, inspire the youth about recycling and waste education, and help divert recyclables from landfill.
TRASHed appoints the right talent to match each event’s aesthetic. Artists who have worked with us in the past include: pro-skateboarder Bob Burnquist, artists from Volcom and RVCA, rock musicians Blink-182, pro-surfer Jodie Nelson, Freestyle Motocross rider Mike Metzger, artists like Mear One and Freddi C., author Hunter S. Thompson, and many more.
Events: Coachella Music Festival + ESPN Summer & Winter X Games + Treasure Island Music Festival + Virgin Festival Canada & USA + Natural History Musuem – LA + Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival + Hollywood Bowl + CMJ Music Marathon + Dew Tour Epicenter Music Festival + Live Earth Sundance Film Festival + Swerve Festival SXSW + many more…
