It’s mendsday 🤗 🧵 i put together a little needle book with a bunch of dyed scraps so i could try to organize myself a bit 🤪 anyone else feeling a little all over the place lately? where’s mercury 🌖?! the left patch was dyed with acorns and iron on cotton and the right side in onion skins on linen. hopefully this will make mending a little easier between the craziness of everyday life.
There’s a monster in our sea.
crashing waves of plastic
too much to oversee.
living near the ocean,
i’ve seen the beaches change.
trash washing onto shore
meshing with the sand
it’s time to #backouroceans
take action for our land.
i’m excited to be working with @americanexpress to fight marine plastic pollution.
go to @americanexpress or @parley.tv instagram page to help #backouroceans. in the comments of the #backouroceans posts explain why you #backouroceans or tag friends who you want to get involved. for every comment made from now through 9/23, @americanexpress will partner with @parley.tv to remove 2 lbs of plastic from beaches and coasts, up to 1 million lbs. #amexambassador
Congrats to my friend @beyondbethell for his company @beyondretro ‘s collaboration with @converse in supplying used denim to make new shoes. these types of partnerships are what will make scalable upcycling possible. very proud of steven and his team.
