Because there's just one earth, and it is beautiful

The Recycled Materials Art Competition was created to promote recycling and reuse of materials emphasizing creativity and innovation, in line with California’s goals to keep 75% of waste out of landfills by the year 2020. The competition is an opportunity for children to learn more about recycling in Marin County. Our goal is to raise public awareness and support of educational programming regarding recycling, reducing, and reusing of materials.
