Are Receipts Recyclable?
An interactive installation educating the general public about the impacts of receipt paper with sustainable alternatives to the problem.
In this project, we were tasked to use waste as a topic for exploration, experimenting with materials and combining with visual communication to educate our audience. An alarming statistic we discovered within our initial research is that 93% of receipts are printed on thermal paper that contains Bisphenol A/S (BPA/BPS). BPA/BPS are both endocrine disruptor chemicals that could cause hazardous health effects in our immune system.
