The Visible Trash Society, founded by that white trashionista Little Shiva, is about conspicuous consumption redefined. It is trashy good fun and educational, too, NOT just another green shopping blog (we do support sustainable and environmentally conscious artists and businesses, so go green, go, buy recycled, ’cause if there isn’t a market for these products, the process isn’t going to happen).
Olympia Dumpster Divers and friends will be at the Olympia Film Society art reception this Saturday, January 26, from 4 pm – 6 pm for Remember/Do Not Forget, an art installation by Diane Kurzyna in the Capitol Theater“™s garden alcoves; there is also a photography exhibit by Rachael Meredith Lang and Rodrigo Valenzuela in the mezzanine gallery. Free admission and refreshments, please join us!
And if you’re feeling crafty, come and learn how to create little Chinese dragons from recycled materials (like polar fleece scraps, telephone wire, and twisty ties) with Ruby Re-Usable at Whirligig on Sunday, January 27, 1 pm – 3 pm, $15 advance, $18 at door, ages 8 – 108. Ruby enjoys using the polar fleece scraps she got (for free!), and loves the fact that the fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles.
