Broken Bottle Bout
The Broken Glass project aims to find a solution for glass waste in Montana. It is led by the Enactus team of students at Rocky Mountain College. Enactus brings students together to make a positive impact in the world through entrepreneurial action. With this competition, we would like to bring awareness to the problem of glass waste in Montana, and provide an opportunity for the community to offer their ideas for a better solution through the power of art.
