In the Spring of 2017, I directed a trash-sketchbook project for the 8th-grade students in their Sustainability Class at Bialik-Rogozin School, a K-12 school in South Tel Aviv, Israel, which serves mainly refugee youth and the children of temporary foreign workers. I collaborated with the teacher of the course to incorporate trash-sketchbooking directives into the curriculum. In this way, students learned about environmental issues while simultaneously engaging their own creativity and resourcefulness hands-on. Projects involved collaging trash, such as plastic bags and receipts, into books from in the school library's trash-pile.
