Basic description of the project:
Every year Chinese consumers use 45 billion pairs of disposable chopsticks which amount to 2 million square meters of demolished forest area. We recycled over 30,000 used pairs of used disposable chopsticks from restaurants all over Shanghai, and turned them into a broken chopstick tree structure. The installation was then displayed in several busy city districts popular with restaurant diners. Through the visual impact of the fallen chopstick trees, we raised awareness of the fact that the use of disposable chopsticks results in the destruction of large numbers of trees.
