I love to travel and some time ago discovered I also love to write, combine this with my husband's photography and we get to share it all with you. Please follow us on Facebook.
What Can You Reduce and Re-Use?
The Pepper Street Arts Centre, 558 Magill Road, Magill is an arts and cultural initiative of the City of Burnside which supports creative endeavour and excellence, promotes arts appreciation and education and provides for social engagement across the artistic and wider community.
Our environmental awareness has demonstrated for many decades that our throwaway society is having an increasingly greater impact on our planet. We see this impact in the current state of our oceans, the impact on our marine and wildlife and our ever-increasing reliance on landfill. Many fantastic organisations such as Sea Shepherd, with the help of like-minded communities, do amazing work in trying to remediate the damage we are increasingly doing, but unless we stop relying so heavily on those products which contribute to the damage, these approaches are bandaid solutions.
Exhibitions such as The Plastic Bag Store being offered as part of the Adelaide Festival, make obvious the enormity of the problem.
The encouraging insight though is just how much more environmentally aware we are becoming and the Reduce, Re-Use Exhibition at Pepper Street Arts Centre is a fantastic demonstration of our impact on the environment and provides encouragement for us to be considerate when selecting products containing contaminant substances.
The exhibition is a diverse and eclectic collection of works created by more than 30 artists which includes jewellery, wall art, sculpture, glass and textiles, all created using items which would otherwise have gone to landfill. Each object has been transformed from its former purpose into intriguing, wonderful and sometimes unrecognisable creations. For those creatively-minded or those wanting to reduce their impact on our environment, this exhibition is a wealth of ideas on how to creatively re-use items we would otherwise throw away.
During the exhibition, the Pepper Street café, Dorrit;s Coffee Shop will be open for refreshments. Pop in and enjoy a variety of drinks and treats and great, affordable prices.
