Rather than paying far flung landfills to house New York City’s trash, what if the garbage was packed into small plastic cubes and shipped worldwide, what if the receivers of said refuse paid $50 for the privilege? That is exactly what artist Justin Gignac is doing. Now, this is more of an art project than an effort to clean up the city, but every cube of trash Justin sells is one less in the landfill. So, celebrate Earth Day one day late and buy some NYC trash (ships within 7 days).
