What's your Plastiki? The star attraction of E&H Week 2013 is back at Fair Park, but this time as a featured exhibit at the State Fair of Texas through Oct. 20. The Plastiki is docked at Main Gate Plaza, adjacent to the Front Gate of Fair Park on Parry Avenue and DART's Fair Park light rail station. The message of the Plastiki is multifaceted: to care for nature and the environment; to take responsibility to recycle plastic water bottles and other recyclables—the Plastiki proves that used plastic can be a valuable resource if re-purposed in a smart manner; and to encourage youth and adults alike to pursue their dreams and passions. The Plastiki is an exemplar—a metaphor for following your dreams. It stands for curiosity, imagination, innovation and adventure.
