Utrecht Beats the Mountain

Large Art
If you’ve got some free time today and are in/near Utrecht, it’s worth stopping by the Domplein to check out the We Beat the Mountain Day of Recycling. I stopped by earlier today when things were just getting started. The basic idea is to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and how you can both recycle, as well as upcycle. There’s music, fashion shows, markets (with some very cool re/upcycled items) and a group of artists trying to create the largest piece of art made of recycled materials/trash. They’ll be attempting to break (or set?) a Guiness World Record with the art made from trash. The event goes on until around 11 tonight, so there’s still time to check it out if you’re nearby. If not, here are a few photos I took.
