Smashing Eco Exhibits

Macro-Sea 'Glassphemy!' Shatters Traditional Recycling Methods

— May 29, 2010 — Eco
The interactive Macro-Sea 'Glassphemy!' exhibit is designed to make you think about recycling in a new and innovative way. Macro-Sea has created a giant 20'x30' tower wherein participants can throw glass bottles at individuals, who are hidden safely behind a wall of bulletproof glass.

The broken glass from 'Glassphemy!' will be used to make new lights, environmental fill or topsoil--all good causes. Macro-Sea felt the green and recycling movement needed a fresh take, and thus Macro-Sea 'Glassphemy!' exhibit was born.
