News from County Environmental Services:
The National Recycling Coalition established America Recycles Day in 1997. Every year on November 15, millions of people across the United States participate in America Recycles Day. This day raises awareness about recycling, reuse, waste reduction and the importance of buying recycled products to close the loop.
To celebrate America’s Recycling Day, Los Alamos Public Schools and Los Alamos County Environmental Services hosted a fun and interactive recycling art and fashion show.
This year, despite COVID-19 restrictions, the event was held by curating the collection of submissions and displaying them using an online gallery and sharing it with the community.

In total, 15 local recycling fashionistas from across the community and over 100 recycled artists from Chamisa and Pion Elementary School participated in the event. By creating art and fashion from otherwise discarded materials, participants help raise awareness of the value of materials often considered waste. Students from Chamisa and Pion schools were inspired to create art from recycled materials, while learning about the impact of waste on our environment. The illustrations were created from obsolete and discarded Braille books, cardboard boxes, newspapers and cardboard boxes. Teachers appreciate leftover carpet boards donated by Ken Nebel of Village Arts.
The event was judged by members of the Zero Waste team and the Los Alamos High School Eco Club. While it is always difficult to make a decision, the following artists and fashionistas have been selected as the winners of the Recycled Art Fair and Fashion Show 2020:
