Phillips de Pury & company

The business of art has an unfortunate side effect - waste. Literally mountains of paper, plastic and wood are discarded every year in the process of making, moving and installing art works and exhibitions. Phillips de Pury & Company commissioned artists, designers and architects to make bird-,bat- and bee houses out of Phillips de Pury's trash (cardboard, crates, paper, catalogues). These are auctioned of and the proceeds will benefit the Adventure Ecology's education program.
