Todays Field trip brought me to vist the Green Team located at 459 Iranistan Ave Bridgeport Connecticut. I am meeting Adrienne to discuss an April Pop Up Shop to display and demonstrate jewelry recycling. We are working on a great plan.
These books are creating jobs and an opportunity to keep the massive amounts of discarded books out of the dumps . Some of the books are chosen for their Amazon Storefront. "Next Chapter Books Storefront. Walking through the warehouse Adrienne pointed out there are as many as 800 books per large freight box, they also have CD's, VHS, Books on Tape and all subject matters.
Some of the lesser quality books are set aside and packed up to be recycled for pulp and repurposed/ recycled for new items. ( I would love to get my hands on a couple of the picture books, can you imagine a mixed media artists very own living dream.)
I felt so energized by my visit and am looking forward to doing some fun projects. We are planning a Pop Up Shop event so stay Tuned.
