As we consume plastic daily, we discard it equally so. Let's find a new purpose for this over-consumption. Beyond serving a myriad of uses at home, plastics are also being utilized in innovative ways to inspire positive change in the way we look at our earth and environment. A growing number of artists using plastic waste to not only create art, but more significantly, to create awareness of the importance of plastic recycling.
