Baywood Climate Fest

This weekend was Baywood Climate Fest!  In solidarity with the world wide activist movement in support of positive and prompt action on climate change.

I biked out there in the morning, shared plastic pollution facts and gathered signatures to ban plastic water bottles in SLO.

In the morning we all got on canoes, boats, sups, etc to form a big peace sign in the water! 🙂 Then there was live music, peace talks and lots of wonderful art!

My friend Silvi and I created “Betty” a gown created out of up-cycled plastic straws, water bottles and plastic bags! All the straws were found when I used to be a busser in the wasteful restaurant industry and the bottles and bags were found dumpster diving. 🙂

Grateful for my community and friends!

Love love love you all so much! Today was magical!

SLO Creek Clean Up

My friends and I were trying to schedule a landfill tour at Cold Canyon but did not find enough people to go. So Dusty Lucre and I cleaned up San Luis creek!

Officially found the creepiest place in slo and picked up a bucket full in only 30 minutes!
We are rescheduling the landfill tour for another day. Message me if you’re interested! 🙂‪#‎riseaboveplastics‬ ‪#‎creekcleanup‬ ‪#‎deepdark‬

PS the oterh day was America Recycles Day, the annual public relations campaign to ensure consumers don’t think about source reduction. Here is an interesting article I read about it.

My new love, Embroidery

I embroidered my hat last week and was so excited about it I wore it everyday…including the day we were painting and accidentally got red paint splattered on it!! I scrubbed and washed it but it wouldn’t come out.
So I saw it as an opportunity to get crafty! Now my hat has lavender and bees on it! Love transforming sad moments into happy ones! Buzz buzz 🌾🌸🐝 SB
