“Thank you for the invitation to be part of the Landfillart Project. Art is a great way to bring people together and to raise awareness of global and local concerns. Landfillart elegantly does both, while being a solution in the form of reclaiming materials directly from landfills. The health of the environment is important to me, and I have more and more hope when I see solution based projects that focus on specific aspects of environmental issues that allow the regeneration of land, air, fresh water, and ocean. The more each of us strive to make a difference as we show up to what we love, the more we collectively move toward a vibrant peaceful world.”Tamara English
