Welcome to the FAQ for Trash Me. Here I will cover all of the questions people have been asking so far. Before diving into the questions though I’d like to explain the project in a little more depth to help you understand what I am doing and why.
For 30 days I am wearing every single piece of trash that I create while living like the average American. The average American creates 4.5 pounds of trash per day and I will attempt to do just that. Normally I aim to live a near zero waste lifestyle so this is not a lifestyle that I am accustomed. But for the 30 days I am going about life in a manner that is absolutely normal in the USA. I’ll be eating, shopping, and consuming like we are accustomed to in this country. Everything about my life will be normal and the only difference is I have to wear every piece of trash that I create instead of putting it into a garbage can. Most people never think twice about their trash, once it’s in the garbage can, it’s out of sight, out of mind. Through this project I, along the award-winning filmmakers at Living on One, and Gary Bencheghib, am out to change that by creating an unforgettable and shocking visuals of the trash that we create everyday, and inspire us all to drastically reduce our trash.Read More›
