SEPTEMBER 30, 2012

In conjunction with SustainRVA’s clean-up initiative, STUFF REDUX held a donation bin decorating event on Sunday September 30th, 2012. STUFF REDUX collects sterile, reusable supplies from MCV by leaving large donation bins in the hospital. These bins are sometimes mistaken for trashcans so we decided to transform our plain, plastic donation bins into eye-catching mosaic masterpieces. We used the supplies collected at the hospital to decorate and beautify these bins.
