Mastering Recycling and Upcycling with Marie Boyum – 11-28-15
October 28, 2015
We all are surrounded by so much “stuff” in our lives. When you are done using your “stuff”, do you consider how it might be re-used or re-purposed so that it can continue to provide use and value? There are many ways to see the “things” around you in a new way, and our guest this week is here to help us master the art of recycling and upcycling.
Marie Boyum is a former owner of Anything’s Possible, an eco-friendly art boutique in Racine, Wisconsin that showcased local artists who upcycle. She is a former children’s librarian and teacher and author of four books on literacy, play and baby brain development. Incorporated in all her works is an element of recycling and upcycling (even before the term existed).
She has always considered herself a “Thrifty Naturalist” and being a yoga instructor for the past 12 years has truly tied in the meaning of yoga- union. Union with mind, body and spirit as well as respect and oneness for all. Part of her deep love and reverence for nature includes taking care of this beautiful planet by sharing that simple living saves the earth’s resources and money.
Marie loves writing, books, teaching, public speaking, travel, cooking & baking, gardening, beekeeping, raising chickens, dogs, trying new experiences, music, & tea. She is a yoga instructor and offers yoga therapy classes.
