Abstract: An artwork reveals concerns and aspects of environmental ethical issues, environmental philosophy, social ecology, evolved technology, environmental degradation, and social alienation. Teachers learn how to develop environmental education and encourage students and citizens to respect environmental behavior, through Trash Art and ecological thinking. This study aims to investigate the connection between Trash Art and nature through a literature review and quantitative research. The environmental awareness of teachers at Primary and Secondary Schools and to which degree the development of environmental awareness drives to respect environmental behavior has been examined. The connection between art and nature, using natural and artificial materials for art, results in the revaluation of human presence in the environment.

Key words: ecology, Trash Art, environmental education, environmental communication, actions
