“I loved the hubcap idea, something that comes off your car when you’re going too fast, something you find crumpled by the side of the road. Out of the landfill to benefit reforestation. What could be better? And I get to be a part of it, and transform this piece of metal into my own little forest. Thank You!”Mimo Gordon Riley
