I was on campus at East Carolina University recently for a senior photo shoot, and it was such a beautiful day! Â I got there a little early to walk around and prepare (usual), but I noticed a lot of the trees in the mall area had some strange markings on them. Â I couldn’t tell what they were from far away, so of course I had to go investigate! Â Once I got closer, I saw what was going on, and I thought, “How FUN?!” I am a total “earthie” if you didn’t know.. I recycle pretty much anything, and can’t bear the thought of not reusing a glass container. Â Those of you who don’t know me personally probably aren’t aware that before I really got into photography, I was very involved in eco-friendly crafting and entrepreneurship.. I created a business my senior year of high school in e-commerce and selling my wares at local craft shows. Â I had so much fun with it and gained so much knowledge about the hand-crafting world! Â I am still pretty involved, but in other capacities.. I don’t have much time to be crafty these days, but I enjoy the opportunity every chance I get!
Anyways, back to this wonderful sight to see at ECU.. enjoy! Â It was so cool to see, and is a great way to remember Earth Day is not just one day a year.. it’s empowerment that should last throughout the year! Â Yes, the earth-lover and eco-conscious side of me may have publicly subsided since focusing my efforts more on photography, but I still find it very important to be as mindful as you can of waste, carbon footprints, and reusing what you can! Â Of course, you can recycle nearly anything these days.. so take time today to find a recycling bin for that can of soda today rather than the garbage can.. it will help the environment so future generation can enjoy the simple pleasures we have today!
