Got to perform at Muses parade with Bate Bunda this year. It was a blast, and the highlight was seeing some of the floats that well represented 'A Night at the Museum.'
Didn't get a shoe but what I did take away from the experience is the feeling that big parades like this are extremely wasteful. Performing towards the back of the line, we were literally marching through a river of plastic. Little bags that throws come in were everywhere. Beads, bottles, and cups littered the streets for the whole route.
How can we do better? Why do we produce tons of plastic just to throw it all in a landfill? If we insist on producing this much stuff, we might as well invest in compostable bio-plastics that are not harmful to the environment. Why must this be the price for fun?
