Done. Better.

Last year, my sustainability group, for a class called transformation design which deals social advocacy projects, created a giant plastic bag which we were able to fly over the West Side park in Manhattan. We were affected and appalled by the scary facts we came across in our research and decided to incorporate that info onto our piece. So, "Million A Minute" (the amount of bags being used world wide) became our counter message.

The Bag flew for about 15 mins until it tared apart allowing us to explore some others ways of interacting with it.. The secret life of bags on facebook was a way for us to promote our message and get people to engage on the project.

Our plans for the future were to make it "CNN-BIG", as Mr. Bruce Mau cleverly put it during his visit at Pratt, kindly taking the time to review our project. The idea was to send it around the world, get people to add onto it and create a huge piece that could float above us as a reminder of the immensity of waste that we are all responsible for.

BUT, we found THIS!!!
