Plastic Zero visited Trapholt Art & Design museum in Kolding
17 January 2014
Plastic Zero visited Trapholt art and design museum Sunday the
27th of October to give a presentation on plastic waste
as a resource. The presentation was given as a part of theOut to
Sea? exhibition which has been touring the globe.
The Exhibition focuses on plastic waste in the environment
especially the plastic that ends up in the oceans and the severe
consequences this has for the marine life. Trapholt, being an art
and design museum, combined theOut to Sea?exhibition with a strong
focus on the design phase of products in order to increase
recyclability and to seek that the plastic waste arising from the
obsolete products is recyclable and less problematic. The focus of
the exhibition therefore correlated very well with the aim and work
of the Plastic Zero project.
The presentation was given to the visitors of the art museum
where many of them had specifically chosen to visit the museum on
this Sunday in order to hear about the opportunities and challenges
with plastic waste and recycling, as well as the experiences from
the Plastic Zero project on this. The visitors participated with
interesting questions and comments and helped ensure an inspiring
knowledge sharing throughout the day.
