Limited Edition Bin Bags

As part of the street party, we also distributed free sunflower growing kits to everyone on the road and initiated conversations about trying to keep the road clean. These, along with the street party, were precursory trust building activities in the wider narrative of a project we are still trying to realise: artist designed limited edition bin-bags, a speculative solution to the Balsall Heath litter problem.

Unfortunately, like so many places in the UK, littering and fly-tipping remain common in Balsall Heath. Recent attempts to revitalise the physical fabric of the area include a Beat the Blight campaign and the Balsall Heath Clean-Up Parade happening on July 7th.  

[The ‘Interview with Two Cats’ talks more about the limited edition bin bags].

This aspect of the project was funded by the Near Neighbours scheme.
