Responsible Consumption

The Plastic Bag Mandala installation by Gala Narezo, Chantal Fischzang, Charlene Sequeira & Julianne Rehani generated community action and awareness at the Union Square Greenmarket.  Market goers were given the chance to exchange an old single-use plastic bag, for a new, re-usable bag.  Over six hundred people set an intention to reduce plastic consumption by signing a pledge to bring the re-usable bag to the market.  The finished mandala serves as a template for continued action, and an embodied aspiration for a plastic-bag-free future.
