tons of opportunities

Dana Fenwick, from the Plastic Quilt project

"Leave No Plastic Behind" is seeking submissions for the National Plastic Quilt Project. "Environmental advocates, as part of Leave No Plastic Behind (LNPB), are quilting together a message that favors alternatives to single-use plastic. Since 80% of this plastic travels to sea from land via rivers and streams, The National Plastic Quilt Project was created as a tool for bringing the issue back home... The Project takes place August 15-October 15 and includes an avoidance of single-use plastic, an accumulation of unavoidable plastic and a creation of a 12" square quilt patch from any parts of the unavoidable plastic collected." The submission deadline is August 15 and quilt squares will be due in late October. Details and submission info are on the LNPB website.
