I created an online space for my third artifact, called “Plasticfree Plaza”, where people interested in reducing plastic waste can gather.
For this site, I designed a framework, providing the issue resolution action plan, as you can see the three menu of the site. I organized the menu to convey this framework of “your challenge”, “help out”, and “advocate”, very easily. The site logo is also designed to remind people of these three actions.
- Briefly, ‘your challenge’ as for individual effort is based on my practice of collecting plastic garbage over a week to help find my own ways to reduce reliance on plastic uses that can be kept sustainably.
- The ‘help out’ is a kind of work session to think about the value of plastic through the plastic exchange and the upcycling work.
- Lastly, carefully selected curation was made for ‘advocate’ page, among numerous pieces of scattered information on plastic waste. In this page, I introduce from the awakening media coverage on plastic waste, to heroes and supporters in our society.
This site looks simple, but it took a lot of time to design, select, and curate information.
For those who are interested in reducing plastic waste and preserving the environment but are not able to move into action, I hope this site will helpful and useful to explore, and give them opportunity to think about plastic waste once more, especially through the participation sessions!
Thank you for the helpful feedback today and all the fruitful discussion over this semester!
