David LaFerriere has drawn a picture on almost every one of his kids' lunch bags since 2008. He uses colored Sharpies to draw on the plastic bags. See all of them (over 1,100!) on his Flickr stream. (Via Colossal; Thanks, Sally!)
Doesn’t everyone do this? David’s work is excellent and there is another brown bag artist like me linked on my blog.
I really hate this. Not because the artwork isn’t awesome and beautiful. It is. But because there are now >1,100 nicely decorated lunch bag in a landfill somewhere.
My thoughts exactly. Although I hate myself for being a killjoy, it bothers me more to see so much plastic wasted on a single use. There are reusable options out there. Couldn’t he use food markers to draw directly on the sandwich and leave his kids a world to enjoy instead?
Here’s a paper waster, to go with this; the great Thomas Perkins and his lunch bag blog for his children.
I too waste paper for my kids,
