Summer of Sustainability, University of Nevada, Reno 2014

Reno High School students collected plastic bottles from campus, cut them up and strung them like garland to create a massive curtain!img_9352img_9346img_9353UNR Knowledge Center (KC) hosts art from all area high schools that uses recycled, repurposed materials!


Student volunteers then drove the massive garlands (20′ tall strands) and hung them in the window of the Knowledge Center at UNR with spectacular results.

Students from Washoe County are afforded the opportunity to create art that raises awareness of garbage!


Over 300 Reno High School students recycled vinyl records into colorful pinwheels. Notice the old paint cans and repurposed PVC pipes holding the records!
