New York Compost Box Project

NewYorkCompostThema: Composting made easy for New Yorkers on the go.
Beschreibung: City dwellers looking to dispose of organic material while keeping their communities green will have another way to pitch in amid the changing media landscape.
Those ubiquitous newspaper boxes that have lain dormant with the rise of the web have found new life – literally – thanks to the New York Compost Box Project. The brainchild of former tabloid newspaper designer Debbie Ullman, the project places boxes in the city as repositories for New Yorkers to get rid of their food scraps whenever it’s convenient for them.
“I see it as an urban intervention,” says Ullman, a master composter who spent more than a decade in graphics at the New York Daily News. “My goal is to make people more aware of the value and ease of composting, while at the same time making use of these boxes we all know are yesterday’s news. This process will encourage engagement with the boxes, creating an innovative, and unexpected experience.”
The New York Compost Box Project complements the DSNY’s Organics Collection program by offering an innovative way to divert food waste from landfills and raise awareness about urban composting.
