Turning Trash into Treasure

CellMark is impresed by the great initiatve taken by PaperSeed Foundation to set up a Recycled Materials Art Competition with elementary school students in Marin County, California, USA earlier this year. Looking back at PaperSeed’s first Annual Recycled Materials Art Competition it was a huge success. The range of inspired projects was astounding, from twisting paper branches to surrealist portraits made of cardboard; robots made of old tin to colorful sculptures. And we understand the judges had an incredibly difficult time choosing winners.


The Recycled Materials Art Competition wrapped up on May 26th with an awards reception honoring the winning student artists and their teachers at CellMark’s office buidling in San Rafael.  All were impressed with the beautiful entries and level of skill exhibited by all participants. In this post we showcases some of the  amazing work created during the competition. To view the amazing work submitted by all 2016 participants, click here.

CellMark would like to thank PaperSeed for this great initiative. We also extend our thanks to Marin Sanitary Service and Mill Valley Disposal for their generous sponsorship of the 2016 competition.
