PROGRAMS

The Azulita Project's programs focus on plastic recapture, consumer education and reducing plastics usage with businesses, schools, organizations and community members. We work internationally, supporting ocean-bound plastic recapture along Mexico's Pacific shoreline, and running community education programs in Flagstaff, Arizona. 

Our multi-media educational programs reach students of all ages. We create learning opportunities for people to rethink plastics consumption, discover reusable alternatives to single-use disposables, and explore effective recycling to keep resources out of landfills.  

TOTE-ALLY REUSABLE BAGS

Do you have unwanted reusable bags?

Donate them to the Azulita Project! Drop off cloth or reusable PET plastic bags at one of the Azulita Project's convenient collection locations. Donated bags are sanitized and distributed to community members to reduce plastic bag use. 

You can drop off—and pick up—reusable bags at the Flagstaff Main Library, the East Flagstaff Community Libraryor look for the Azulita Project collection bin at the seasonal Flagstaff Community Market.

POLITICAL SIGNS

Keep plastic campaign yard signs out of the landfill!

Plastic political yard signs cannot be recycled in Flagstaff and greatly contribute to plastic pollution in our community.

 

Azulita secured pledges from each 2020 Flagstaff mayoral and City Council candidate that they will reuse or repurpose their political signs. Azulita Project volunteers and campaign volunteers collected more than 1,000 plastic political signs and provided them to local residents, schools and artists for creative reuse.
