Plastic Garden Float was a collaborative project with over a thousand students from Pasadena Unified School District collaborating on a 100% recycled material Rose Parade float. Community conversations were encouraged around discarded plastic waste as participants wove plastic yarn, or PLARN, for the float out of recycled bottles. Plastic Garden Float was displayed at the official Post-Rose Parade Showcase and Paseo Colorado.
