This is Maria’s studio. She makes pots with her family on kick wheels and by hand. We love partnering with local artisans and knowing exactly where the work comes from. Come see her studio and make some pots with her and her family during one of our week long Artist Retreats!

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
-Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

1 Million Women

Try to “refuse” before you need to “reuse”!

Going zero waste can be made so simple by following the '7 Rs'!

“While donating and recycling is great, I can’t leave this blog post without mentioning that we should change our consumer habits.

It’s important to reduce the amount we buy, hone in on our personal styles, shop only with lists, implement a buy ban like waiting thirty days, and stop shopping as a hobby. “

What do you do with those old socks with holes in them? What about your old undies? Or that shirt with the stain you just can't get out? Some clothing can't be donated... so does it go to landfill? #zerowaste https://www.goingzerowaste.com/blog/how-to-recycle-and-where-to-donate-your-old-clothes?utm_campaign=meetedgar&utm_medium=social&utm_source=meetedgar.com

Such a fun couple days with these awesome world schooling families! We had so much fun watching the kids play together and engage in the community! Thanks for your visit! .

CFC helps facilitate custom projects that work for you and our community. For this project, we worked with UC Davis professor Cindy Passmore to help her create science curriculum about global warming and plastic pollution. Cindy and her family collected and logged garbage found on the beach and researched different ways El Tránsito is dealing with the trash. Then we created a cement and beach garbage stool that will serve as a reminder to pick up after yourself at the beach. Thank you Cindy and family for your amazing work!

Food for thought 🤭

📢Food scraps DO NOT break down in landfills! 📢⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This is something I wish that I could shout from the rooftops! Most people I meet assume that their food waste will compost in a landfill (which makes sense because landfills are giant holes in the ground), but it doesn't!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Organics can't break down in a landfill because they're designed for storage, not decomposition. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There's no oxegyn in a landfill so organic matter like paper, wood, and food scraps are stuck in a limbo state releasing methane. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Methane is a gas 30x more powerful than carbon which is far more devastating to the climate because of how effectively it absorbs heat.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In fact, 16% of ALL methane emissions in the US comes from landfills! 😱⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Making food waste, if it were a country, the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions behind China and the U.S. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So, if you want to make a serious impact and reduce 50% of your household waste with just ONE swap, start composting! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you compost? What type of bin do you have? If you don't compost, what's holding you back? ⠀⁠⠀

One thing Craft for Community does is work in the village school to help with sustainable projects. Thanks to @nicafund, El Tránsito school has many programs to help out with. Do you have an idea for a project?
