Philadelphia Garden Show is Inspiring Recycled Green Plastic Art Plus a Contest For Garden Furniture
Posted Mar 09 2011 7:13am
Each year tens of thousand of people come to garden shows across the country. Each show is beginning to display more and more green ideas for the public. This week I am at the Philadelphia Home Show seeing some amazing reuse and recycling of plastics.
At the top of my list for creative reuse of green is an amazing replica of the Arc d'Triomphe built from recycled and reused plastic. Michael Dee, a creative Los Angeles-based artist, designed the piece as a salute to the Philadelphia Garden Show's "Springtime in Paris" theme and the nearly 20' display has been wowing the crowds all week. Beautiful reduce, reuse, and recycle art at the garden show = priceless!
If you are not able to visit the show, you can still have a little fun with the Plastics Make It Possible team. Enter to win their online contest before Friday, April 29th, and you could win a
complete outdoor dining set and garden furniture made from recycled milk
jugs worth nearly $3,000! Simply upload a photo of your garden to their site at this link - - and tell them how you use or reuse plastic in your garden.
And remember - recycle and reuse everything you can for a better world!
