Several of Ian's plastic blister pack creations are now featured on the Project Vortex website. Project Vortex is a collective of artists and designers who work primarily with plastic diverted from the waste stream. A portion of all sales made through the website go to local beach clean-up efforts, and Ian has agreed to donate 50% of any sales to the Friends of Casco Bay organization. Check out Ian's plastic art on the Project Vortex site here.
Blister Pact collaborated with Brooklyn Elementary school PS 321 in Park Slope to collect their plastic waste throughout January's Green & Healthy Month (conveniently right after holiday gifts!). It was a huge success with both students and parents contributing their blister packs. The month then culminated in a Green & Healthy Night on Thursday, January 29th, and we were invited to host an interactive evening. We had so much fun with these kids. They had a chance to learn and participate in Ian's fabrication process and colored in Thank You cards just for the Blister Pact Kickstarter rewards!
