Taking recyclable items and using them to create pieces of art is nothing new – Bronze Aged people used leaves to adorn their pottery.

Our Waste Disposal colleagues were invited to create pieces of art using recyclable materials found on board; something which would cause most other people to go weak at the knees with the lack of creativity. But our colleagues were not deterred – in fact they rose to the challenge!

From using cork and a broken clock to showcase Superman, to creating a church scene out of cans and cardboard – there were some fantastic entries.

Entries were received from:

  • Arcadia
  • Aurora
  • Azura
  • Britannia
  • Oceania
  • Oriana
  • Ventura
  • Queen Victoria

Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo of their magnificent art work.

Below is a selection of some of the entries we received:
There can only be one winner though and we’re delighted to announce that our Waste Disposal colleagues on board Aurora impressed the judges, Josh Weinstein and Donnacha O’Driscoll! Congratulations!

Congratulating them on their magnificent artwork, Captain David Pembridge (Aurora, P&O Cruises) said, “This fantastic team are completely dedicated to doing an amazing, and often difficult job. Their wonderful work epitomises the ethos of behaving through commitment and not simply doing things in order to comply. What a creative piece of art – very original and inspired. Congratulations!”






Eric, Randy, Leo, Ricky and Edulown created their piece of art using lots of recycled materials, including cardboard, plastic bottles, a damaged lifejacket light and paper – well done, it looks fantastic!

Like what you see? If you work in Carnival House, the art exhibit will be displayed in the Atrium in the coming weeks – watch out for more information!

The recycled art challenge was set to mark the renaming of our fleet Garbage Rooms to Recycling Centres, one of the ways we’re celebrating Global Recycling Day. Read about Ventura’s renaming ceremony here.
