Save your Ash!

For the past month I've been working with 6 students for the WMEAC's Save your Ash campaign. Our project will bring awareness to the Emerald Ash borer infestation that has killed 20 million ash trees since it arrived in a ship from Asia in 2002.

Our project consists in wrapping trees with a green biodegradable ribbon, and hanging red tags with hand printed images that illustrate the issue.

We have printed a ribbon the size of an entire block, more than 250 water proof tags, and 500 buttons.
