Float down Tranquil River with ease of stitches knit into a light and airy summer shawl. Sun streams through the opaque illusion revealing the inspiration of melting ice cap rivers. Enhance an evening out in Tranquil River with extra color, sparkle, and glam by including optional beads on the fringe.
Looking to the future of creatives for our eco elements “Future” blog interview, I happened upon an interesting book of fairy tales, Midnight Comes. Primed to jet off to uni, the daughter of one of my favorite indie designers, Talitha Kuomi, took a few moments to sit down with Puddles and I (virtually speaking) to tell us about her craft. I’m thrilled to introduce you to the budding poet author, Sierra.
Two underlying philosophies of eco principles are preserving and nurturing natural resources for future generations. To that end we turn our attention to these two principles in our next mini-series.
Wrapping up our look at Fair Trade is Fair Price, aka Radical Transparency.
As the MKAL wraps up and the FO thread populates with all your stunning attitudes, let’s explore the eco element Fair Trade feature design, Je Ne Sais Quoi.
Sitting in The Tea Leaf after treatment, I had many opportunities to chat with the owner, sommelier, and tea aficionado, Catherine. These conversations were the first remembrance I have on learning about “Fair Trade.”
It just dawned on me – my release to go with the 3R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) is green! What a happy, unplanned, surprise ?. Let’s go deeper than the unintended color coincidence and examine the Eco Elements seen in Outdoor Studio.
Rounding out our look at “reduce, reuse, and recycle” is the late societal addition to the 3R’s… the U of “upcycle”! I love upcycling yarn leftovers into wonderfully unique designs – anything from a hair tie to gift wrapping to another publication. Something about the challenge of knowing I have this much yarn and not a strand more lends an exciting boundary box to the infinite design possibilities!
