Who says work attire has
to be boring…or bad for the
environment? With the classy
looks from designer Carrie
Parry, you can have it all. Parry
buys materials from indigenous
communities, including fairly
traded wool and silk from Indian
weavers, as well as organic cotton,
merino and biodegradable Tencel,
made from wood pulp cellulose.
The results are gorgeously
sustainable pieces with a simple
yet versatile flair; CarrieParry.com.

Art Cycle Miami
305green.com, Rescue Earth & Ground Up Collective
recently launched a new recycling project called
Art Cycle Miami. Born out of the desire to bridge
Art, Community & Environment, Art Cycle Miami is
bringing recycling to Miami in the form of art, one
venue at a time. For the 1st edition, we selected local
Miami artist Greg Pitts, known as The Black Jackson
Pollock and an artist of expressionism. Pitts uses all
recycled materials as his canvas — from the hoods of
cars to box springs, pots, pans and tires. In fact, old
unused tires are a huge landfill problem and are not
biodegradable. In the U.S. alone, an estimated 300
million tires are disposed of annually. It is our mission
to use these tires in a way to continue recycling
awareness while sparking creativity at the same time.
Art Cycle Miami will be featured at several local
Miami music venues and festivals as well as galleries
and businesses. We will continue to select local
artists to participate in the project and give them
the freedom to create their own interpretations,
thus staying true to our mission of bridging art,
community and the environment together, ultimately
creating awareness through the form of art. If you
would like to get more information on how to have
Art Cycle Miami displayed or to be selected as one of
the artists, contact Info@305green.com.

that the more green businesses there are in town, the
more sustainable our community will become.
Choosing plants that are already
well-adapted to South Florida
saves our waters, pesticides
and fertilizers. It’s a great way
to create a gorgeous landscape
while minimizing pollution.
