“Green Glam, I am a Fan!”
Amici Creations is the result of two friends (Susan and Tricia) and artists coming together to make fabulous scarves. Amici is the ltalian word for friends. These scarves are more than just an accessory. Each scarf is made either partially or fully from previously owned clothing. They bond silk, rayon, cotton, and viscose together with merino wool through a nuno felting process. The star found on each Amici Scarf represents friendship.

Elisabethan Eco Fashion
They’re crazy about recycling! Since 1996, Elisabethan Eco Fashion has been committed to making exceptional garments and goodies from all the post-consumer fabric they can get their eager little mitts on. Using laundered second-hand clothing as their “yardage,” they hand-cut each piece using their original patterns, then lovingly combine them into one-of-a-kind items. It’s new, not more. Enjoy!
Greenwoman Magazine & The Green Carnation Project
The idea behind the Green Carnation Project is simple: Put some white carnations in to a jar/vase of water with a generous amount of green food coloring overnight or a few hours. Then display at stores, schools, churches. Ask people to wash off the coloring. They can’t. Point made. This is the same for any pesticide/herbicide that is absorbed through the roots or leaves of trees and plants–even Roundup. There are so many viable alternatives instead of “the unthinkable risk to our children–ourselves.”
Sandra will also be giving away some copies of the first issue of Greenwoman Magazine.
We hope to see you there!
