Waste management and art

In textile industry, they usually show the beauty of the products in fashion shows. However, when we look at the process of making these beautiful clothes, we see the dirty processes of e.g. bleaching in chemicals or the buildings of sewing companies that collapsed in Bangladesh a few months ago.

On the other hand, when we talk about waste and waste management, the picture that is usually pop up is the dump sites and dirty environment, and no beauty. However, in a recent attempt to change this picture, a Danish waste combustion plant in Copenhagen is making a beautiful site as a hill to ski (remember that Denmark in a flat country with no hills and mountains) and also the smokes come out as a big vortex. See the film here!
