“Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose”- “We as a population produce too much that is considered trash even though still useful. I would like to see the majority of our throw-away society find creative ways to recycle bits and objects and our mountains of trash turn into something useful and perhaps even beautiful. This Project is one organized method to accomplish these ideals that includes many countries and many artists. I am pleased to be a part of this movement.”B.J. Adams
