About the event

The exhibition was created as a response to plastic waste washing up on Pacific islands, with the goal to learn all about single-use objects throughout history and across the globe. Expect to take a look at your own relationship with throwing things away, as you dive deeper into the astronomic growth of our levels of waste. You'll be pushed to compare single-use objects from thousands of years ago to today and really think about how to make a change in your own life.

 

You'll leave the museum with a newfound drive to cut down your waste - it's a group effort!
