Revinylize in Baltimore!

On March 10th, we had a great time at Revinylize. This event was co-sponsored by AIGA Baltimore and the Irvine Nature Center.

Every year, over 600,000 tons of billboard material is created in the US, and all eventually ends up in the landfills. To help repurpose this waste, AIGA Salt Lake City chapter created the Revinylize Project. By reclaiming local billboard material, the once giant images, are transformed into smaller works of art in the form of unique vinyl messenger bags. Participants that attended made their very own no-sew bag just with some simple cutting and weaving of the straps.

Here are some photos from the fun day!
