An item on the eBay Stories blog describes some auctions of art made from “trash” donated by celebrities:
If that sounds, well, weird, it really isn’t, once you get a chance to look at the pieces this person has created. In fact, we think it is a cool idea.
The theme of the artwork is “wild life,” inspired by the idea that if your life is wild at times, things may break and then need to be thrown away. So, don’t worry: the art is made from broken items, not rotten banana skins or dirty diapers.
One of our favorites is this one, a Jason Mecier Original “Wild Life” Raccoon Artwork presented by GLAD Black Bag.
The raccoon piece includes trash from Lauren Conrad and Constance Zimmer. Fashion designer Lauren Conrad is reported to have scoured her trash one day, coming up with green and white pencils, bottle caps, wrappers, magnets, and more to contribute to the project.
Proceeds benefit Keep America Beautiful. More here: eBay stories blog | What would you pay for trash?
