The United States consumes over 1,500 plastic water bottles PER SECOND. Over 85% of these bottles become garbage that ends up in landfills throughout the country. What can local artists do to create awareness?
To help make a difference, over 40 members of the (no name) Art Group in Philadelphia design artwork for a thermos alternative to plastic bottles. Artwork is interchangeable so any artist print can be inserted in the thermos. Each thermos sold for a $20 donation and featured in a local gallery exhibition that includes a hanging installation of 1,500 plastic bottles. Fundraiser to provide 100% profit. All proceeds donated to charity: water.
