MFTA was honored to spread the joy of reuse at the 2010 Mayor’s Interfaith Breakfast.
The centerpieces at this event echo the religious leaders’ calls for “a safe, secure and clean environment” and “compassion and wisdom for all living things.” The centerpieces were made entirely from materials that would have gone into the dump had they not been turned into art projects by NYC Department of Cultural Affairs’ Materials for the Arts program. Student and adults volunteered their time to make these centerpieces in order to show how NYC is reducing its waste stream through the arts. Indeed, in 2010 alone the MFTA removed almost 700 tons from the NYC waste stream. Compassion and wisdom for all living things: don’t throw it in the dump, reduce, reuse, rethink.
