1 - THE THEME
The Trash is a universal problem, faced by all sectors of any society. It is basically everything that is discarded from human activities. Lately, the problem of waste is taking absurd dimensions! It invaded the streets, air, water, and believe me, to our virtual world through the spans and viruses that threaten our computers. Sometimes, we even desire to send it all to space! But the worst is that we already sent it! The orbit of the earth is full of rubble, debris from satellites, ships and other lumber from space!
Much has been discussed on the best ways to recycle or dispose the waste generated by the style of contemporary life. Any attempt to reduce the amount of waste or changing its composition requires changes in our social behavior. The demographic concentration in cities and large increase in consumption of soft goods generates an enormous amount of waste of all kinds. Both come from homes and public activities such as industrial processes and technology. Litter is the faithful mirror of a society. The more rich has the higher consumption, generating more rubbish. Their disposal and possible reuse is a challenge still to be won.
So we call all cartoonists, professionals and amateurs, for a humorous and critical reflection on the theme! It’s time to recycle our ideas. So, let’s work ...
Oh, and remember to reuse paper that you used to scratch!
Good luck to all!
