Turn Old Into New and Improved at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire!

Posted on June 5, 2013 by

Ever think about productive ways we can use (or save!) the earth’s resources? Wood, water, soil, or even what you may consider to be “junk?” Believe it or not, this “junk” can be used to make some pretty sustainable (and fun!) items, such as alternative housing or even model transportation! If you ever need new ideas about what to do with your old stuff, the Seattle Mini Maker Faire will provide you with endless inventive ideas!

As a citizen of the earth…

As a citizen of the earth…

I fully have the right…

to harvest water from the sky

to grow my own food in my own home

to harvest energy from the sun and the wind

to contain and reuse my own waste on my own land

to make my shelter comfortable without the use of fossil fuels

and to harvest what others throw away to construct my own home

I am willing to die to defend these rights and to spread the knowledge of how to
achieve them to others.

If six billion other people said this as well…
we would transcend the corporations, the governments, and the federal reserve bank.

We, the people, would always survive.

We Will Always Survive, We Will Live Forever

I Dreamed I was an angel,

I knew how to fly

I saw fire in the canon

burning red up in the sky.

I saw people in the darkness,

I saw people in the light.

They were singing to each other

and it echoed through the night.

 

WE WILL ALWAYS SURVIVE –

WE WILL LIVE FOREVER   Read More
