TRASHed (Trash Education) offers talented artists the opportunity to turn ordinary recycling bins into works of art that inspire people across the globe to see the beauty in recycling. TRASHed bins first appeared at Coachella in 2004 as an opportunity to provide talented artists a platform to support the planet and receive access to the festival. Submit your concept to Global Inheritance by February 14th for the chance to roll to Coachella 2023 with your bin.
TRASHed Art of Recycling promotes the Art of Thrifting this April! Our newest collection of redesigned recycling bins will be matched with second-hand festival outfits from our favorite thrift stores in Southern California. Both the bins and the outfits will take center stage in Downtown Los Angeles this April for a fashion photo shoot. Our goal is to spread the word that thrifting your Coachella outfit and accessories is a crafty way to reduce your festival footprint and look good doing it!
Global Inheritance is looking for volunteers to assist with the Art of Thrifting education campaign. If you’re just too busy but LOVE thrifting, please send us your recommendations for thrift stores in Southern California. Confirmed stores will be asked to curate up to (4) outfits to coordinate with the redesigned recycling bins. After the photo shoot, everyone involved is invited to the opening night of the TRASHed Art of Recycling Los Angeles exhibit to meet the artists and spend time with the bins before they roll to Coachella.
