The Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant program’s much anticipated Straw Forward™ Art Installation will be exhibited at the Carnegie Science Center from 1/15-2/15 with an official unveiling slated for 1/15 at 10 am.

Straw Forward demonstrates a community-wide collaborative effort to accelerate an important message about the global issue of plastic pollution--from a local perspective. The installation comprises of more than 25,000 plastic straws collected from 37 Pittsburgh-based restaurants, nonprofits, and businesses between June and October of last year. It also includes discarded plastic-based items pulled from the banks of the Allegheny River with Allegheny CleanWays, yarn from First Mile (of Thread International) that was upcycled from plastic bottles saved by citizens in developing countries, and other re-purposed materials from Construction Junction and the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. The concept, design, and construction of the installation was developed through a partnership with the creative team from Pittsburgh-based Shift Collaborative.
