The Litter Project

Leeds Metropolitan University art student Bess Martin is passionate about the environment and keeping her local area tidy. Over the summer, she started The Litter Project, which focuses on reducing litter and encouraging recycling in Leeds. To promote the project, Bess has created an art installation made from litter collected in the city and it’s currently on display in Leeds University.
