Taking cover under plastic waste

Taking cover under plastic waste

The designer Garth Britzman has used plastic bottles to create a cover for a parking space. To give it a bit of colour, he added dyed liquid to the bottles to produce a specific design.

Why it matters

Is this an interesting and creative use of recycled material? Are practical yet artistic installations the way forward to help solve a very serious problem such as plastic waste?

Moped Gangs

Their Mecca is the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.  They are the caretakers of discarded trends - Ray Bans, fanny packs, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, big glasses, and their new ride of choice - the moped. Mopeds are being brought back in fashion across the US - with some cities even boasting their own “gangs” : Creatures of the Loin (San Francisco), Puddle Cutters (Portland, Oregon) and Hell’s Satans (Richmond, Virginia). Brooklyn’s gang, The Orphans, opened up The Orphanage - a moped repair and restoration shop that also serves as a hangout for the moped community.
