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!
