Leave No Plastic Behind 2009

January 13, 2009

Welcome to the new LNPB blog. The last one fell victim to a homemade website name change, but we don’t let things like that stop us! What’s up ahead for Leave No Plastic Behind in 2009:

• Two more episodes of Leave No Plastic Behind this year! One in June and one in November. We are inviting politicians in Salem, Oregon to take part as artists for the June show, Episode Five! Theme (tentative): “Unified”. Following in the footsteps of The Ribbon Project the AIDS Quilt and others, we are creating a large piece of art created out of many decorated squares made by you! Maybe we’ll even wrap a building or something huge like that…stay tuned.

• This year we will have our fiscal sponsorship in place, so we can do more with the graciousness of grants and supporters.

• Continue planning a community-owned business centered around the concept of zero waste and begin a documentary of our progress.

• Develop partnerships with Portland businesses, organizations, schools, galleries, street fairs, individuals and groups in an effort to unite the city in disallowing single-use plastic inside our borders. 

• Intrigued? We hope you will join us in some of our efforts.
