Charlotte's Website

We are referred to as a ‘throw away society’. We discard objects and belongings as they can quickly be replaced by others.

This growth of waste needs urgent action, and as a creative, Charlotte felt a sense of responsibility to respond.

‘Prolong’ is a project whereby she prolongs people’s relationship with their waste.

Charlotte collected a month’s worth of her household waste and made a kitchen stool out of it, to show us how much we waste and emphasise the potential of the discarded material.
