Mara Branco artwork Tote Bag

Everybody knows that plastic bags are bad news to the environment, the wildlife, and ultimately to us. A sad fact about plastic bags is that they kill 100,000’s of marine life annually!

Plastic bags take thousand years to disintegrate, and increase oil dependency since they are made of polyethylene that comes from oil.

The MB arts Honu’ea Tote Bag is here to help the environment. It is a beautiful, reusable and environment friendly bag that helps you replace the common shopping plastic bag. The Honu’ea, or red Hawksbill Turtle is one of the Hawaiian endangered species and is protected by law. This is the most respected sea turtle for the ancient Hawaiians.

There are a lot more reasons why we should not use plastic bags. If you want know more about this environmental problem check this report.

Hand Made Postcars

Postcard by Mara Branco
I needed some postcards at the last minute so I had to improvise. I was so involved in the process that I forgot to take some pictures. But even so I want to share with you this simple and easy way to make a postcard.

You can start by choosing the color of some heavyweight acid free construction paper. This will be used for the outline of the the postcard. Cut the card to the full open size you need (e.g. 20 x 15 cm) and then fold the card in the middle.

You can add different colors and shapes of construction paper to embellish it even more (e.g. a cyan stripe across the card).

Using watercolor paper draw and paint the motive you want for your postcard, then cut and glue it on the front of the postcard.

And there you have it! personalized postcards to share sweet words with your family and friends.Postcard by Mara Branco
