Green Tease: RECYCLE

Sign up on Eventbrite. 

This in-person event will explore the issue of plastic pollution and look at local actions that can be taken to reduce plastic waste. It is being organised in connection with the exhibition LOST at Eden Court.

Artist Julia Barton will lead a tour around the LOST exhibition and demonstrate the Ocean Plastic Skipping Ropes she and the event collaborators are making. Julien Moreau from Plastic@Bay, Durness, will share their idea for decentralised community recycling in the Highlands. Andy MacVicar from GreenHive, Nairn, will explain the recyclability of different types of plastics.

Together, we will make a map of where each single use plastic item is likely to end up in the world for recycling, incineration or burial. Participants will be able to suggest any products we need in the Highlands that could be made out of recycled plastic.

About the LOST exhibition at Eden Court

Eden Court is collaborating with artist Julia Barton, continuing the COP26 #ClimateCrisis story by showing LOST, an immersive climate action exhibition at Eden Court, May 15 – June 12 2022.

The exhibition will feature a collection of 18 #LitterCUBES. Julia and project volunteers collected thousands of pieces of beach litter plastic, which they stitched and wove together to make each cube during five public events held in coastal communities around Scotland. A film projection will play throughout illustrating the dripping-away of 100 litres of oil, visually representing the lost energy embodied in the #LitterCUBES.

Julia aims to show how plastic pollution directly contributes to our climate crisis. Her work highlights the lost energy that plastic marine litter represents in terms of litres of oil, making the often un-seen or misunderstood links to fossil fuels.
