The United Nations has declared disposable plastics the biggest environmental challenge in the world and 15 nations already abandoned plastic bags. It’s not only the plastic of a plastic bag that is our problem, but most objects in our everyday life are also wrapped in plastic.
The Danish government’s recycling strategy involves sorting the waste in more fractions, bringing more containers into our households and building new systems to process and recycle the plastic later. – But is there a better alternative?
“Balance of Our Plastic Culture” is a transition project reducing single-use plastic connected to our food culture. It focuses on avoiding single-use plastic coming into our households in the first place. With a market, a kitchen and a laboratory, the project aim to execute a local, circular connection between production, consumption and waste.
This sustainable approach should inspire people to change a global problem locally.
