Waste Me Not – Recycled Art Show
Recycling is not just a trendy or suburban thing to do. Recycled trash is a way of taking care of not just our community land fills and environment, but taking care of this planet gifted to us. I’m not about to go into a political “green” tirade about preserving our planet and go outside and hug one of my palm trees, I do want to share an event coming up that is not only fun, creative and a great way to get involved locally while teaching our children the benefits and importance of recycling. Waste Me Not – Recycled Art Show is a non-profit event put on by Recycle Brevard 3Rs and it’s sponsors to raise awareness of the importance and need to recycle and to raise funds to support the cause here in Brevard County.
Recycle Brevard is hosting this event on Sunday November 22, from 2:00- 5:00pm in the Community Room at The Avenue Viera. (The community room is located between Francesca’s and LOFT)
This event is FREE for all participant students and an accompanying adult is $5.00 while general admission is $10.00. Recycle Brevard will be awarding the participants with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for each perspective grade level. They will also be giving a Most Creative overall award. Guests to the event will vote for their favorite piece of artwork to receive the People’s Choice Award.
Waste Me Not Recycled Art Show will also present live music, a cash bar, participation activities and light hor d’oeuvres. All event proceeds will go to support Recycle Brevard/3Rs and Beyond for future activities and events like this one.
Recycle Brevard is a not-for-profit organization that was inspired after learning that only 30% of Brevard County residents recycle from a landfill visit and tour only a few years ago. Recycle Brevard promotes recycling and sustainable living throughout the Brevard community by educating, projects and events focusing on local schools, children and families.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the ultimate poster child for why is it so important and vital for all of us to recycle on a regular and consistent basis. One, you will save money and ironically the use of plastic garbage bags. Most municipalities offer recycle bins and cans at no additional cost to residents, regardless if you live in an incorporated or unincorporated area.
Here is a great example of turning washed up beach debris and trash into art. All of the art displayed at Exploration Tower in Cape Canaveral was cleaned and turned into a larger collection of themed art.
Mark your calendar for November 22 and come out between 2:00 and 6:00pm for a great event for our Florida Space Coast community. Waste Me Not Recycled Art Show is set to be a great and enjoyable event for the entire family!
