Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.
— Jacques Cousteau

Works of art created by New York State college and university students who participated in the “Plastic-Free Waterways Through Art” contest held by Syracuse University’s Environmental Finance Center (SU-EFC), with funding from NYS Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I).

The goal of the contest and resulting art works is to raise awareness about water pollution caused by single-use plastics and to inspire the use of reusable alternatives.
