'In today’s global world you may drink coffee from Brazil or a smoothie containing frozen fruit from China. You could be wearing clothes made in India, watching a TV made in Japan while sitting on a sofa containing wood from Argentina on a laminate floor manufactured in Sweden. All of this has been made possible by a rectangular steel box – the shipping container'.
We don't really give it much thought do we. I have to confess when I stepped inside one of the six 20ft shipping containers, part of the Container - the box that changed the world exhibition in the port area of Fremantle Harbour last week I was shocked to see images of the catastrophic effects on the environment the 'simple shipping container that 'revolutionized' the way we live' can cause. It's definitely worth embiggening the pics to see more, a visual is so much more effective than words don't you think. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
