CREATE A STYLISH EARTH DAY DINNER PARTY WITH EVETTE RIOS
STANFORD, Ky.– (4/19/2010) In honor of Earth Day 2010, Evette Rios, a national eco-craft and green-living enthusiast, and DecoArt, Inc, a leading craft and specialty finishes manufacturer, have teamed up with Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, Inc.’s retail blog, “A Good Look by GoodwillNyNj” to create a series of DIY home décor online projects.
The five videos, which were shot in Goodwill‘s Chelsea store in Manhattan, will feature Rios preparing a dinner to honor the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.
Rios, who is a Rachael Ray Content Buddy as well as a contributor to Planet Green’s “The G-Word,” says, “I was thrilled to get involved with Goodwill and DecoArt on this project!”
“I love getting people to rethink their approach to second hand items,” Rios says. “Products made using sustainable materials are great, but using your creativity to transform what has already been created is greater and GREENER! Plus- it’s a whole lot of fun!”
All of the videos can be found at www.decoart.com/diy starting Monday, April 19, 2010. One video per day will be released throughout Earth Day week. The content is free to be distributed and shared.
