Freeport, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2018 -- Think Box Media is proud to be a part of the Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City, which was unveiled at the Center for Architecture in Manhattan on Thursday, June 14th, 2018. Curated by Andrew Blum and designed by Wkshps, the exhibit explores how waste is managed in buildings and neighborhoods throughout New York City, and how design can be utilized to reduce the enormous quantities of waste that end up in landfills each year.

Based on the Zero Waste Guidelines, which acts as a resource to help building operators, planners, and designers to reduce waste and increase recyclable diversion rates, the exhibit was printed and installed by one of the leading printing companies in New York City, Think Box Media. The company, headquartered in downtown New York, knows the compounding effects of an unsustainable waste management system.

With the tens of thousands of trucks arriving in New York City filled with clothing, food, and other goods, an estimated 24,000 tons of waste is discarded and leaves the city as waste. The consequences are yet to be fully realized, but the effects are already substantial. With sidewalks blocked with garbage bags, trash accumulating on city streets, and the emissions of the hundreds of garbage trucks contributing to global warming, it is obvious there is a problem seated in the infrastructure itself.

That's where the importance of design and architecture comes into play, of which Think Box Media printed and installed the eye-catching visuals to make a significant statement on the importance of an infrastructural redesign of the waste management system in New York City.
