Suzanna Nickerson's "Beach Trash" exhibit opened in January 2019 at the Chatham Orpheum before our screening of One Big Home. The exhibit displayed the diversity of plastic waste found on Cape beaches. Each work was comprised of items collected by Suzanna over the period of an hour walk. The month-long exhibit promoted the tangibility and urgency needed to adopt conscious consumption and take responsibility for our common environment. (The posters photographed as well as others are available for loan for educational purposes; please contactus@sustainablepracticesltd.org ).


On April 22, 2018, Earth Day, we partnered with the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and CARE to sponsor an all-Cape education hour. We were at nearly every transfer station on the Cape from 9:00 to 10:00 in the morning.
