Live Debris – Portland Oregon

September 18th, 2009  |  Filed under Events/Happenings


We don’t usually tell you about local events but we thought this was so new and exciting you had to know about it!  A [BRAF] 2009 Grant Recipient, Live Debris 2009 is a series of international events sharing reuse traditions as a means of reducing stigmas around garbage, poverty and street culture. Live Debris has taken place in Beirut, Lebanon, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and now Portland, Oregon.

    Does anyone have a few fun photos of the Portland 2009 Live Debris event? I write a newsletter for a state (Oregon) recycling organization, and would love to include a photo or two from Saturday’s event on the Esplanade.

    I just enjoyed a morning smile as I was leafing through a collection of Robert Service poems: The first line of his poem “Dirt” is “Dirt is just matter out of place”. The term MOOP has a fine literary heritage. Rivergal

    I was wondering what is up with that weird gravatar??? I do know 5am is early and I’m not wanting my finest at that hour, but I hope I don’t appear to be this! I might nevertheless make that face if I’m asked to do 100 pushups. lol
