A very special thank you to Doug Young and South Florida Audubon for making this year's Trash2Art possible.

Working with Toyota, Audobon has created the Together Green Grant Project.  Here is what they try to do:

It's all about helping you get involved in creating a brighter, healthier future. It’s a dynamic and innovative Audubon program funded by Toyota that aims to provide inspiration, leadership and opportunities that inspire people everywhere to take action at home, in their communities and beyond to improve the health of our environment.

And that is exactly what Trash to Treasure is doing through Trash2Art:   Inspire others to take action, see things in a different light, make the world a better place, build community and sustainability.

This year's Trash2Art is the best yet.  Thanks again South Florida Audubon for  choosing us as one of your projects this year.  We look forward to working with you in the future.
