Conscious Response 

to Overconsumption & Waste

About CROW

The CROW mission in simplest terms is about reducing trash, promoting mindful green habits, and restoring hope for a healthier planet.  Crows ​are shrewd consumers who have little regard for wasting. What better model for we homo sapiens hopelessly trashing our beautiful planet?  Separating household trash items does not seem nearly enough, does it?  Too little to curb this massive problem.  New attitudes and new habits are vital to the global cleanup mission. So I've resolved to reduce, reuse and repurpose as much as I possibly can in the hopes I can not only reduce my own carbon footprint but maybe even inspire some others to rethink t​heir own habits as consumers and as responsible stewards of the Earth. Join me, please!  Let us each respond consciously and creatively to the trash we create, the trash we walk around or drive by in our daily lives. Together, let's do more to create less waste!

Join the CROW mission

Do we really need to throw everything in the trash just to tidy up our little worlds?  Can we give it to someone in need? Donate it to a thrift store? Or maybe even start repurposing some things?  Let our imaginations soar!  

 SHARE YOUR BEST REUSE-RESTORE IDEAS!


Mission

The CROW mission in simplest terms is about reducing trash, promoting mindful green habits, and supporting a healthier environment.  Funding established charities through the sale of upcylcled artworks is one of CROW's working methods.  Sustainable sculpture adds natural beauty to the home or office while sharing the virtues of thrifty and creative  repurposing  "junk" materials.​

Vision

CROW's resident artist, Rumpelstiltskin,  eagerly welcomes fellow artists to share ideas with, participate in clean up events,  and of course, support with their own artistic endeavors.  CROW is to envisioned to become a coaltion of creative humans trying to become better Earth stewards, locally, nationally, and globally.  We can support each other and  these great causes by offering generous chunks of our art sales to our partner charities.  They in turn can support local artists by sharing  the art and the upcyling credo with a wider audience.
