A fantastic event held for 3 years to benefit a wonderful organization. Blue Wrap is the synthetic material used in hospitals for sterilizing instruments and sterile clothing and covers. It can't be recycled and tons of it is discarded. It was given to art schools and fabric/costume designers to create wearable art.
