Rethinking Garbage

NYC has a lot of garbage and this garbage goes everywhere. RPGA Studio is changing behaviors around garbage by taking a multiplying approach.

1. Redesigning garbage cans so youth associate positive feelings with trash.

2. Redesigning ash trays so adults who smoke use their butts to vote and not litter the streets.

3. Use virtual reality to teach people about just what are some of the impacts surrounding consumption so they consume less.

4. Use Queens Art Intervention 2016 as a tool to engage other artists, small businesses, and individuals so together we can come up with ideas on how to change behaviors surrounding trash.
