Kitchen Trash

Trash Bubbles Heart the Earth X

The lengths to which a company will go to brand and package consumer goods never ceases to amaze. Everything is labeled and sealed and sealed again. Although I do realize that a good bit of that is for consumer protection, I can’t help but feel that it is overkill. There is no use for all that post consumer crap which eventually makes its way into the landfill or ends up as litter on our roadsides.

Nowhere is this more prevalent than in our kitchens, where our food stuffs are stored and prepared. One look at this bubble and you can clearly see what I mean. Ninety percent of the trashy bits inside were outer seals from food stuffs. They are colorful and make for interesting bits in trash bubble collages, but beyond that?

In composing this bubble, I chose a blister pack with colors that felt bright and kitchen-like. When embellishing the bubble, I kept to those colors, adding patterns that continued the same feel.

Here is a glimpse of the back:

This was the last bubble in the Trash Bubbles Heart the Earth mobile. The local Art of Recycling show opens today, April 19th, in the Cranberry Township Municipal Building and runs through May 3rd. Check it out if you’re local!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

  1. Maybe the seals are to keep us out of the food, most of which has so many gmo’s and preservatives we would be better off not eating it…..”food for thought”, pun intended. Not to many farmer’s markets with bubbles eh? It is incredible though – we recycle a full 32 gal barrel every two weeks which includes all manner of stuff(including critter food packaging) and only do landfill trash every 8 weeks…..that’s how much there is to recycle.A good bit of it is glass, but still, makes you think about what you buy before you buy it. xox
