Amazing Recycle Pen Art Showing at the Greentivities Exhibit

I just completed my second recycle pen art project in time to be shown at the Sonoma County Fair exhibit called “Greentivities“. “Greentivities”, is a new, fun, interactive, and exciting venue for both kids and adults to showcase examples to the community with ways to approach recycling, reuse and conservation through art and hands on demos.

How I got there was a text book case of convergence. Last Wednesday I was walking around down town Santa Rosa and I run into Rebecca at the Share Exchange Coop who knew Anita at the Greentivities booth at the faire and suggested I contact her about a speaking gig. I then got a call from Anita and went down to see her Saturday to find out more and sign up to speak. I asked about submitting a pen art piece and she said “yes”… if I could get it to her within 48 hours. Needless to say I met the deadline and my second piece proudly hanging at the fair along with some great recycle art including a few art car chairs made by Patrick Amiot of Sebastopol, and amazing scrap metal drummset.

What I love the most about this piece as opposed to my other one called “The Giving Tree” is that due to time constraints I didn’t have time to over think it too much so I just went with the flow and worked as quickly as I could to get-r-done. When I showed my wife for the time it has this amazing effect on her as if she was being pulled into it and experiencing a time warp as well. On this particular piece I got to reuse 448 donated pens.

I also got to use some of my favorite pens donated from all over like the world. I have a Mummy pen, an etch-a-sketch, a french fry, pen again and the operation pen. I love it when things line up, especially all the pens.

Mercedes Pens Helping Those in Spain Learn English

The Mercedes Pens art car was just published in the latest English work book called “Contrast” by Burlington Books for students in Spain who are learning English.

The student is asked to read the story about the pen Guy and the Mercedes pens and then write a 60-80 summary. Here is my summary in less that 26 words: “Not only am I doing my part to collect old used pens from around the world, I am now helping others learn English, Pretty Cool”

Fancy Shmancy Pen Recycling Barrel at Forestville Elementary School
I just delivered and installed a new fancy shmancy pen recycling barrel at Forestville Elementary School which was originally at Analy High School but was too big so I made them a smaller version. This pen recycling beauty is located smack dab in the middle of the entrance to the school as you go past the main office. Can’t miss it. Its going to be a good school year.

Pen Covered Donation Barrels Hit the Streets of Sonoma County
Pen Covered Donation Barrels Hit the Streets of Sonoma County

I just completed my first two pen covered donation barrels ready to be placed in locations around Sonoma County. I prepped the surface fist then went through about two tubes of silicone glue to decorate these formerly ugly looking 55 gal plastic drums. I will be unavailing these today at the Forestville Business Expo from 4 to 8pm looking for a business that will agree to become a pen donation location near down town.

The nice thing about these free once used plastic barrels is that they allowing me to continue making my pen art and expand my dream of collecting a million pens here in Sonoma County.
The pen barrels are custom made for each location making it easier to recycle pens on a regular basis and generate more traffic for those who want it. I also book an appearance to come by for a meet and greet with folks who want to drop off recycled pens and get a chance to see the Mercedes Pens Art Car.

If you are interested in participating in pen recycling please email me to order your pen recycling barrel for your business, school or other organization.
