Arbor day

Wondering what to do for Arbor day?

Join our green Arbor day event and come help us mosaic a green forest of trees onto a 40 meter wall!!

Crafty Corner and in collaboration with all the "greenies" are getting together and create a "Tree of life" (more like a forest of life) mosaic out of plastic bottle lids.

We need to all start looking at our waste and becoming aware of our impact on the environment! Every little bottle top, every little container. Look at the big picture, all of our waste together is inconceivable! All our waste together for 365 day a year ... i dont even want to do the sums!!

Lets create a wall of trees from these bottle tops and take a stand against the waste!

The installation will be done on the day onto a wall at the Booysens Hotel.

We would welcome anyone to help by getting creative and being involved in an amazing event that will grow our awareness of our carbon footprint on our planet. We will be using any form of plastic bottle tops in any colour so start collecting and spread the word.

The mosaic will be at least 2 meters high and 20 meters long so we need plastic bottle tops!! If we can make a forest of trees even better!!!

We will be having a green get together for anyone green and excited about their products! Bring yourself and your good and lets collaborate in making a difference!

Cost - FOR FREE!

There wont be a charge for you to market you products but I would need to vet them first to establish the authenticity and sustainability.

This will be have to be done before the day as you need a "green pass" to exhibit!
