Inwood-based not-for-profit draws attention to recycling through art
Congratulations to Inwood mom blogger, photographer and enviro-artist, Michelle Del Guercio. Her recycling-based art booth won three blue "Editor's Choice" ribbons at this past weekend's World Maker Faire in Queens. The not-for-profit, which started five years ago to help raise money for the victims of Katrina, has maintained an active presence in Inwood and Washington Heights--teaching school children how to turn bits of garbage into works of art and encouraging neighborhood residents to volunteer for worthy causes and recycle, reuse and reduce the amount of waste they produce.
