Good news in my e-mail box…

This morning I got an e-mail from Rio Grande (a jewelry supply company) announcing that almost their entire complex is now being run on solar energy. They have installed nearly 5 acres of solar panels. It looks like the panels are also providing shade for the cars in the parking lots which is a system that has always made a lot of sense to me. Way to go, Rio!

Don’t forget that it’s still Craft Week and it’s also National Arts and Humanities Month. If nothing else, just for a moment, consider life without art. Art, craft, and design touch nearly every aspect of our lives from the clothes we put on in the morning to the mug we drink our coffee from to buildings we work in. It’s just as easy to choose well crafted and beautifully designed things as it is to choose the mundane. Whenever possible, choose hand made, and choose local. Shop thoughtfully.
