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!
