As an artist I really am frugal and Earth friendly. I try to use as much recyclable items as possible. It's not always easy though. I belong to the Upcycle Exchange which really has helped me save money and save the Earth all at the same time. The Upcycle Exchange will have a booth Sunday, April 25th, from 11am to 6pm for St. Louis Earth Day Festival. So please come visit us at the Upcycle Exchange booth. We however will NOT, be taking donations. WE WILL NOT BE TAKING DONATIONS THAT DAY.
So what do you do to help protect Mother Earth? Either in your art or home. We try to turn out lights in the rooms we are not using, wash clothes in cold, use CFL lightbulbs, ride our bikes or walk to the gym, etc. We plan to plant a garden in the back yard and start a compost pile too. It's the small things that add up!
