Help us celebrate the 9th exhibit of single-use plastic as art! In order to grow awareness and create innovative local solutions to waste, its International Plastic Quilt Project (once called Leave No Plastic Behind) is a traveling exhibit of artwork made by people reducing their “plastic footprint”. For this exhibit, over 200 student participants set aside the plastic they obtained over a period of time to help them think about alternative possibilities to the steady stream of plastic waste coming out of their schools and homes. Out of this came their creative 12×12″ contributions to the Quilt Project.

Sponsored by Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods—dedicated to the livability of inner North and Northeast Portland, the NECN is an independent 501 c 3.
