Santa Fe Recycles!

Recycle Santa Fe’s Art Festival occurred this past weekend at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, located in the Railyard. Attached are a few pics showing some of the goodies from the show. From evening gowns to placemats, there was something there for everyone. Each product must contain at least 75% rescued/reused materials and the creativity and artistry were amazing. I came home with a fabulous piece of art. This is the 12th year of the festival and it shows how many Santa Feans care about recycling and helping our planet survive.

One of the original organizers and the inventor of the “Trash Fashion Show”, Nancy Judd, has produced a lovely evening gown out of recycled La Fonda bed sheets which is to be adorned with long paper chains of pledges from children around the country explaining how they will save the planet. Check out her website for more amazing creations.  recyclerunway.com
