In spring 2013, the Teen Advisory Panel worked together to create an environmental art project to increase awareness of substance abuse as a community-wide issue. The sculptural piece, titled It All Builds Up, was made of tobacco and alcohol paraphernalia that had accumulated in the environment. Youth collected the materials for this eco art project in the surrounding Bridgeport and Armour Square areas. By recycling these littered items into artwork, the youth cleaned up the community and created a bold sculpture. It All Builds Up was later displayed at Chinatown Library.
