The TRASHed :: Art Of Recycling campaign is an ongoing recycling education program that redefines the way people view recycling and trash collection. Global Inheritance (GI) arranges the artistic redesign of recycling bins, then integrates the bins at high visibility events, such as Coachella 2012 , to encourage recycling and provide additional outlets for people to appreciate the artwork. GI received 6,453 emails expressing interest from which they narrowed down to 50 artists. Lab Art Gallery was site of an one night exhibit honoring this year’s artists before all the redesigned recycling bins are transferred to the Coachella festival grounds.
