WHY: Rise Above Plastics aims to help reduce the use of plastics in our communities. Our main focus is to reduce plastics by decreasing single use plastics by advocating for policies such as the ban on single use plastic bags in major retail stores.

During the event, reusable tote bags will be sold along with local artwork and raffle tickets for items donated by companies sponsoring the event. The group of artists showcasing, work in all different areas of art, ranging from nature photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media. These artists use a multitude of found, reused, recycled, and refurbished items to create beautiful pieces of art, while keeping the materials out of landfills. All sold work will have 50% of its proceeds donated to Rise Above Plastics, with the other 50% of proceeds going to the artist. This event is open to the public with a hosted bar and all tips will go towards the Newport Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation. Please join us in protecting the coast and Rise Above Plastics!
