Gauri- SHWAS

Last year, we donated to SHWAS and provided tuition for an underprivileged girl named Gauri. She started the school year at a new school and is enjoying all that it has to offer. Thanks to everyone's support, another girl in this world is getting the opportunity to get an education.

This year, we have committed ourselves to providing tuition for another girl and any contribution made from you all would make a huge difference in her life.

Donate by purchasing our upcycled jewelry or our new item, the HOLIDAY LANTERN. Thanks!

Maker Faire 2015

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to again display To Green and Beyond's environmentally friendly jewelry at that annual Bay Area Maker Faire. This year, as part of their 10th birthday celebration, the Maker Faire added an extra day to it's festivities. Now, for three days, I had the chance to talk about how paper jewelry can promote living an environmentally friendly lifestyle as well as that one by one, each one of us can make a difference in our communities by wearing up-cycled jewelry. It felt empowering to share my ideas and thoughts with the 200,000+ people that attended this year. I met and shared with people that voiced their different opinions on topics ranging from robotics to fermenting vegetables. The Maker Faire is an amazing place that provides an enormous playground for people to share some of the incredible things that they have made and I am honored to be a part of the event this year. I also want to thank every person that listened to our ideas and supported our organization. With your help, we were able to raise over $1,100 last weekend. It has been another great experience and thank you Maker Faire for presenting this opportunity for To Green and Beyond. I can't wait till next year!

5 things to know about the environment

1)  50 billion plastic water bottles are used per year in America. Only 12 billion (23%) of them are recycled. Maybe it's time to increase the recycling rate.

2)  Paper makes up 27% of solid waste (more than any other materials that gets thrown away). While 64% of paper is recycled, the parts that decompose in landfills release methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas.

3)  About 850 pieces of junk mail gets sent to an average American household. Of that, approximately 45% of it never gets opened and ends up in landfills.

4)  Recycling just one aluminum can can save enough energy to listen to an entire album on your phone. Imagine the endless amounts of music that can be generated by just placing your empty drinks in a different can.

5)  At the current rate of deforestation, the world's forests will completely disappear in a 100 years. The largest effect would be the loss of millions of species that reside in forests around the globe. This could potentially destroy the balance of nature and with it bring many negative impacts.

Knowing these facts should motivate you to do your part in helping out the environment. The Earth is destroying itself little by little due to our wasteful lifestyles and so it is now our duty to try reversing the damage. Being a little more mindful of the resources we take for granted can have the ability to save a couple of rain forests and keep away the drought!
