Trash upcycled into 350kitty495
I took materials (even the base) that were scraps from other crafts, headed for the garbage or recycling to convey the importance of '350'. Materials include magazine, paper scraps, and also metallic CD labels. I believe upcycling is more energy efficient way of reusing post-consumer by-products than sending them to the recycling plant, and is definitely better than sending scraps to the trash! :)

Every Blade of Grass Mattersdragonhouseofyuen

These postcards were made from reused cardboard and old wrapping paper. To me, this represents the mission of 350: living out a sustainable lifestyle while also spreading the word about helping our world.

Urban Vermicomposting Bagapollo1
This is a "continuous flow" vermicomposting bag. That is, the composting of food scraps is facilitated by worms! This is a great set-up for people who live in condos, apartments or other places where traditional outdoor composting is not an option. According to the EPA, food scraps in landfills are a contributor of methane, a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide. Composting food scraps helps reduce the amount of food that ends up in landfills. This vermicomposting bag allows one to easily feed food scraps to the worms that live there, who in turn digest the microbial waste producing rich fertilizer which can then be used in gardens and on plants. The scraps are deposited into the bag with a mixture of bedding(cardboard items such as egg carton containers, toilet paper rolls, etc). As the worms digest the waste their castings are left below as they move upward toward the deposited food. This makes harvesting the resulting fertilizer from the bottom easy and efficient. There is a mesh covering on top which allows for ventilation. This practice will help contribute toward reducing greenhouse gases and getting to 350!
