We are seeing more and more violence and hate spreading through the world. With all of the horrifying events in the news, most of the time we never have a chance to recognize and focus on the beautiful things that are part of our extraordinary planet and artworks that are being created by a community united for a common goal. The project highlights the creativity and positive transformation that is changing the world, and teaches how recycling is an important way to contribute to this transformation. The planet is becoming a world of black or white – we want to turn it into a world of many colors as the artist sees it
