Costa Mesa, California – September 6, 2014 –Surfrider Foundation Newport Beach presents “WASTE-LESS” an art show and fundraiser, hosted by DAX Gallery. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for Surfrider’s Rise Above Plastics Program. Rise Above Plastics aims to help reduce the use of plastics in our communities. Their main focus is to reduce pollution by decreasing single use plastics by advocating for policies such as the ban on single use plastic bags in major retail stores. Worldwide, nearly 2 million single-use plastic bags are used each minute. Plastic bags are usually reported as the second most common type of ocean litter, after cigarette butts.
During the event, reusable tote bags will be available along with local artwork and raffle tickets for items donated by companies sponsoring the event. The group of artists showcasing, work in all different areas of art, ranging from nature photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media. These artists use a multitude of found, reused, recycled, and refurbished items to create beautiful pieces of art, while keeping the materials out of landfills. All sold work will have 50% of its proceeds donated to Rise Above Plastics, with the other 50% of proceeds going to the artist. This event is open to the public with a hosted bar and raffle tickets for prizes. Join Surfrider Foundation in protecting the coast and Rise Above Plastics!
