The first Earth Day was in 1970. Since then we have seen ever increasing evidence of the need to care for our environment, to care for Mother Earth. We must all do our part, whatever we can in our daily lives to help our planet. We as artists can encourage people to lower their carbon footprint by purchasing locally handmade functional ware, YOURS!
Encourage your customers and collectors to buy locally, there is even a whole movement around this concept and a term "Locavore" it's all about buying locally grown food to help reduce greenhouse gasses and buying locally made functional ware instead of something made in a far off place that has a heavy cost on our environment.
