Who We Are:
Leave No Plastic Behind aims to creatively enlighten consumers of all
ages about the impact of single-use plastic on social progress and the
environment. Through a series of awareness raising events, this
collective (of new and established artists) considers the true costs of
modern convenience and demonstrates the importance of collaborative
resourcefulness between consumers, their communities and business.
What We’re Looking For:
Are you creative? Are you looking to volunteer your time for a
worthwhile cause? Look no further…
