Artist Turned 3 Tons Of Plastic Waste Into A Colorful Forest In Mexico City

A Danish artist in Mexico City has created a botanical garden made entirely of garbage. ‘Future Forest’ is the brain child of Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Dambo hopes that the installation will act as a way of getting people to reconsider their relationship with the environment.

“I believe this is one of the main causes to our planet being completely covered in waste. Because people don’t see where their trash goes and don’t know the people who deal with it – I believe we should celebrate these people, – show how wonderful they are and how much potential and how many wonderful things we can create from our scraps. Because by doing this the children of tomorrow might grow up wanting to work with trash, because they don’t see it as something ugly and smelly, but as something beautiful and valuable,” Thomas told Bored Panda.
