Marion County Environmental Services hosts workshops and events to promote creative reuse. Some of the projects we have worked on include:
Have you heard of Trashion, the ultimate upcycling activity? Trashion fuses trash and fashion to promote waste-reduction and consumption alternatives through thoughtful use of reuse materials, fashion, and design. Marion County has hosted and sponsored a handful of
Trashion exhibits and hopes to participate in more events. If you have ideas or skills that you’d like to put into action, contact
Jessica Ramey today!
Salem Puppet Parade
Take to the streets with creative reuse by making a larger than life puppet or mask with the
Salem Puppet Parade.
Upcycled Collage Workshop
Create cool collages that are worthy of Free Art Friday! Waste Reduction Coordinator and artist Jessica Ramey leads you to create inspiring pieces of upcycled collages to share with the community. Be ready with scissors, glue, magazines, and cardboard from your recycling bin.
