Trash! is a unique combination of fiction and fact, developed from a series of workshops conducted with ragpicker children. Based on their real life experiences, it tells the story of the fictional hero Velu, a runaway village child who ends up a ragpicker in a big city, and must face the harsh realities of street life. The story is accompanied by facts and arguments which expand upon the complex issues which it raises, ranging from child labour and child rights to lifestyles, waste and recycling.
