I am pleased to announce that for those of you who are not interested in making your own beautiful recycled bags, you can now buy them online. My online shop is www.EarthBlues.etsy.com. I will continue to post new items on the site, so you can have a look at all of the different designs, especially as I create new ones. While not every bag for sale is made from recycled materials, I have a commitment to using the resources that I have available to me and making high quality items that cannot be found in a factory.
Etsy.com is a wonderful site that allows small businesses to be created by artists and craftsters. Everything on the site is homemade or vintage. Check it out.

Now here is a performer who is making sense of all of our environmental nonsense. Rolande Duprey, a supporter of the RYP-project, has created a new show called "Ecological Logic." The creation of this show, which premiered on 4/24/09, is what inspired the Plastic Soup entry. The nonverbal show, using 3 puppeteers & 1 live musician, features a tremendous plastic sea through a nightmare sequence. I hope that more schools and public libraries add this to their list of events, because it deals with crucial issues we currently face in a high-spirited and whimsical way.
Thank you, Rolande, for creating with love and concern for our world. You Rock, Purple Rock!
