About the Project

To Trash or Not to Trash started from a question asked in a dark theatre in Detroit, Michigan – How can what I do a theatre designer be socially responsible? And has grown into the discovery that we all have the power of choice.

To Trash or Not to Trash encourages theatre companies and scene shops to strengthen their community impact by incorporating sustainability into each production. It’s easily handled and as simple as making one choice at a time.

The project incorporates a 3L Concept

To be sustainable a Theatre Scene Shop needs to focus only the 3L’s: Local, Lumber, & Lower toxicity.
