Once Upon a Plastic Bag,
an Anti-Plastic Bag Campaign in Kyrgyzstan

Through garbage bin street art and a plastic bag clean-up initiative called "Once Upon a Plastic Bag," I wanted to encourage people to seek a clean and comfortable country for their children. I wanted to raise awareness about the rampant garbage problem in Kyrgyzstan. 


As part of "Once Upon a Plastc Bag" initiative, I made a Trash Can Project, researched and interviewed municipal authoritites, took a series of photographs around the country, produced a series of reusable bags, conducted workshops and talks, and presented the final work at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
