These giant backpack puppets are created out of used (and washed) styrofoam lunch trays, 500 per puppet, an average amount of styrofoam trays used per day in NYC public schools. NYC uses 860,000 styrofoam trays per day. The puppets are part of Cafeteria Culture's 2012 Alternative Messaging Campaign, crowd-source funded via Kickstarter.
