Students of the BHSAD presented their art object created for the TGI FRIDAYS™ competition on 19 March at «Afimall City». The competition coincided with the TGI FRIDAYS™ initiative to get rid of all the plastic straws in their restaurants. On average straws are used for 20 minutes, but it takes over 200 years for them to decompose. This means they create a lot of waste – if the situation doesn't change by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
For the competition students created art objects from the disregarded straws. «We resceived all these amazing works that have deep meaning behind them, which means this competition was a good initiatve», – says TGI FRIDAYS™ Russia brand manager Stanislava Kollavini.
NO STRAWS exhibition will last till 7 April at the Wellness&Beauty zone at «Afimall City», and on 8 April the BHSAD will host the final stage of the competition.
