Message In A Bottle Art and Education event

November 1-3, 2019 | Palace of Fine Arts


This year’s theme: Debunking the Recycling Myth

• Plastic packaging comprises approximately one quarter of California’s disposed waste stream annually

• The U.S. generates 12% of global waste, but represents only 4% of world population

• In a 2011, Bay Area study of street litter in areas impacting urban runoff to the Bay, 67% of the 12,000 items collected comprised single-use food and beverage packaging, 50% of which came from fast food service.
