Our friends at Vissla have partnered up The Surfrider Foundation to challenge creatives, to take something that might be considered waste and create something that can be used in the ocean.

Applicants from all of the world have been hard at work constructing something out of nothing to be considered for this contest. On Friday, October 20th we will come together to celebrate these artisans. Four finalists in two categories were selected and asked to send in their projects to California for final voting. Three judges, including our Executive Director, Evan Marks will judge the designs based on innovation, functionality, creativity, design, and aesthetics. This evening we will highlight these finalists at The Ecology Center in our newly designed container art gallery!

Enjoy bites, beverages, and music at The Ecology Center while judges select winners for the 2017 Vissla Upcycle Contest.  RSVP below to let us know you will be attending.
