Gray2Green Total Kit
"Water is the most precious resource on earth"
Retail Value $175
In many areas of the United States the supply of clean fresh water is becoming scarce. At the same time water treatment plants are being overloaded. Yet everyday, each home sends thousands of gallons of graywater to the water treatment plant which could be safely used to irrigate the landscape of your home.
Gray-2-Green offers components and systems that allow graywater to be collected and used to irrigate the landscape of the home, reducing the demand on the local water supply, family’s water costs, and the load on the water treatment plant. Installing a Gray-2-Green graywater recycling system makes sense for the homeowner, the community, and the environment. 41pounds.org Facebook

Unique hand-made creations of local cultural ownership
The richness of chemical-free natural colors
The safety of a fully organic processes
This one of a kind organic silk patchweave is called, prosaically enough "Patchweave 7", was created by artisans in August of 2011. This Earth Day Patchweave 7 was collectively made by a group of weavers like Bua, Lat and Suban, all acting as mutual 'consultants' improvising the design inch by inch, mixing weaving techniques as they like. The natural dyes that predominate in this piece are indigo, jackfruit, and lac (an insect+resin found on certain trees, that yields red and pink hues). The weaving uses only left-over silk from the artisans' regular work. And of course, all silk is from organically raised, indigenous silkworms, and from traditional manual processes including natural colors. Truly a playful. one of a kind piece of utilitarian, wearable eco-art work more than a commercial weaving.
