You admire the art first, then you admire the artist for the technique, then you realize she is recycling too, and your admiration further increases. Chrissie MacDonald is the artist that creates these marvels from the junk catalogs that arrive in her mailbox. Absolutely trash to treasures.

Implications - Transforming trash into artworks has become a great way to bring environmental awareness to the public. There's a growing group of artists such as Chrissie MacDonald who show that going green doesn't necessarily mean sacrifices in electricity. It's an effective way to promote eco ideals because people are always shocked to find out just how useful throwaway objects can be when you put your mind to it.
