NYC’s Festival of Ideas

I got a chance to go to the Festival Ideas this morning. Very cool local businesses + organizations, green projects, and workshops to check out/get involved with. As well, you can drop off your e-waste or food scraps for compost. One workshop that caught my attention was the Upcycle Art Workshop where you can learn how to turn plastic bottles into beautiful objects. I love the idea of “Upcycle”. And of course there was performance artist Edith Raw’s “White Trash” piece, walking around wearing a headpiece made of various plastics and a dress made of clear plastic garbage bags filled with trash. Here are some highlights from the festival:
