Zero Landfill

Artists have never been shy about their trash-foraging habits. But Zero Landfill takes the idea to a citywide level, working with architecture firms, designers, construction companies and others to rescue usable supplies, like samples provided to companies, and make them available to artists and teachers as raw material. This summer, the project rescued 25 tons of material from landfills. Supplies range from carpet tiles, paint-swatch decks and laminate chips to upholstery swatches, flooring samples and three-ring binders. Zero Landfill is part of a project spearheaded by David Fox, who recently started similar programs in Columbus, Minneapolis, Louisville and Boston. (zerolandfill.net) Gill
