Woensel-West residents are collecting plastic to make a ‘beautiful neighbourhood object’.
Plastic can be deposited in bins that have been placed all over the neighbourhood. Once this plastic is collected, cleaned and sorted, a machine transforms it into a work of art.
The outcome of the object will depend on how much plastic people collect. Therefore, the more usable plastic collected, the larger the completed product will be. In the coming weeks, plastic will be collected at Tante Netty (Aunt Netty) every Tuesday. Interested residents are also welcome to lend a hand there.
The project is a collaboration between Tante Netty, the Precious Plastic team, and designer, Dave Hakkens. It hopes to make the participating residents of Woensel-West more aware of how much waste they create. It will also bring residents together.
