Don’t we all occasionally wonder how our trash evolves once we’ve tossed it into the rubbish heap? Imagine seeing the future life of each banana peel, magazine, and apple core you pitched.
The See-Through Compost Container was dreamed up by Nancy Balter and my task was to bring it to life. I worked with artist Matt Mance along with our factory’s sculptors to translate Nancy’s idea into physical form. The product is a sectioned plastic “box” with three compartments. Children and teachers fill each of the compartments up with soil, water, or sand and watch their trash degrade.
