We Live in a Throwaway Culture

Every year Seniors in the Visual Communication Design School at ASU, hold a senior show where they can display their social issue. My senior shoe happened during COVID-19, so we weren't able to host ours this year. This is my senior exhibit, and my social issue was Single Use Plastics.

I titled it ”We live in a throwaway culture” because we do. We live in a time where there are easily disposable items. Items like water bottles, grocery bags, and utensils. It’s something you don’t think about, you grab, and throw away. Each of these pieces take thousands of years to break down because of the material. Instead of taking on that material, there are things we can switch out everyday to limit and reduce our plastic waste. I wanted to show some of those sustainable options.
