Keep Genesee County Beautiful Conference to Feature Upcycled Crafts!

Posted by Crystal Pepperdine, Founder and Executive Director of Flint Handmade

My 29th birthday is this Saturday, March 5th.  I am excited to be spending my birthday morning at the Keep Genesee County Beautiful Conference!

Our good friend Nayyirah Shariff of Revolutionary Bread will be offering a workshop at the Conference called "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Lighten Your Load in the Landfill" with Holly Lubowicki of Keep Genesee County Beautiful:

Green your wallet and the environment!  Reduce waste by learning how you can make your own cleaning and personal care products and by creatively reusing items that are often discarded. Find out how to “pre-cycle” and set up a recycling collection center in your home or office.

Since Nayyirah knows that I reuse materials that would otherwise get thrown away in most of my crafts, she asked me to lend her a few of my beautiful JUNK upcycled goods to show to workshop participants.  Of course, I'm going to give her Flint Handmade brochures to distribute, too.  ;)

The 7th Annual Keep Genesee County Beautiful Community Beautification Leadership Conference and 2010 Beautification Awards Program is on Saturday, March 5, 2011 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the University of Michigan-Flint at the Harding Mott University Center.

For more information, check out this Flint Journal Article about the Conference.

Hope to see you there!
