Trash Calendar

Yurko Gutsulyak, Ukrainian designer, was awarded a GOLD European Design Award (ED-Awards ) 2011 for his Trash Calendar project.

Every calendar day is a new trash bag. Every month is a roll of 31, 30 or 28 trash bags. The Calendar consists of 12 rolls and is divided into 4 quarterly sets with 3 months-rolls. The date is printed on every bag so that you can see it when the bag is placed into the trash bin.

Text on the calendar:

All graphic design products ultimately end up in trash. And many more ideas remain just ideas. We believe that the design idea in each project should have the power to act and be effective during its short life. Only this way design really matters. Only when we create ideas that are able to change the world, our life matters. Then, we do not regret a day, as we did not waste it.
