Litter and such

We definitely heard many of the students lamenting the trash situation in their communities. One girl, Kayla, said she wouldn't mind having a day of collecting litter with her friends. This is a good start, but we want to push the topic further than just cleanup (although that is the first step).

We're considering making art out of the trash we collect, maybe by sorting and photographing it, maybe by weaving bags together or sewing - it all depends on what we find through research of other artist's work with trash or what we think of when we see the kids next. We are also thinking about having the kids help to decorate trash cans (turn them into monsters, basketball hoops, etc.) and placing them in littery business districts.

Additional ideas, anyone? What do you think we should try and accomplish?
