We started our #GSOIClimateChallenge just a little over a month ago, and we’ve been excited to see the engagement and tips that participants have shared on their social media channels. Here are a few ways they have been lowering their carbon footprint in their respective glass practices.
Tips to Inspire You:
Róisín and Sinéad of Glint Glass Studio are pledging to replace their light bulbs with LEDs when needed. They suggest that: “You can do this in your home, in the workshop, in the office. Just look for that little LED sign before you buy your next bulb.” Follow them on Instagram to see more of their tips: https://www.instagram.com/glintglassstudio/
Bronwen Heilman accepted the #GSOIClimateChallenge from Lindsay LeBlanc of LooLooGlass and shared that “I am reducing the amount of running water down the drain. I am now cleaning most of my work using a bowl or bucket of water, instead of running water (then I water my plants with the water)” among other tips! See her Instagram for even more tips from her studio in Tucson, Arizona: https://www.instagram.com/bronwenheilman/
Rayleen Clancy is sharing new work making stained glass light boxes using recycled mirrors with metal frames that will have LED lights. Head on over to her Instagram to follow along: https://www.instagram.com/p/Ca495lnshzf/
