“GARBAGE BAG ART WORK” creates chances to enjoy daily scenes.
How many times do you throw garbages everyday? Maybe 10 times in a trash can, and once at a dump? Instead of putting garbages inside a tank, most people in Japan collect it to plastic bags and take it to a designated place.
But, do you think it’s fun? Who does feel exciting about this? Here are some great examples of impressive designs solving societal problems in a cheerful way.
Put some illustrations and let the garbages swim!
Don’t throw too much trash or penguin is gonna cry.
Or try to create beautiful Mt. Fuji!
Established in 2006, “GARBAGE BAG ART WORK” aims to redesign a daily scene which most Japanese people experience every single day. Yoshihiko Yamasaka came up with the idea when he found a beautifully stacked garbage bags near his apartment.
The project does not just design bags itself, but it even changes people’s mind for trashing. Every people can be an “artist” for throwing trash.
The project quickly spread to lots of places. Various notable designs were created by collaborating with companies, characters, and artists.
Yamasaka explains about the benefit of his designed bags.
