Trash-Made Sneakers Aim to Remind People About the “Plastic Legacy” of Consumerism
Too often the stuff we buy quickly ends up in the trash, where we forget about it. But our garbage doesn’t just disappear once it leaves our homes, so what if we had a daily reminder of the impact of our wasteful ways? That’s the question that the students at Goldsmiths, University of London are asking with their “Everything You Buys is Rubbish” campaign. The campaign seeks to educate consumers on contemporary footwear’s “plastic legacy,” and asks people to consider their shopping habits with a series of shocking ads made using sneakers constructed entirely out of trash found on the shores of the UK.
