Bioregional ecology education and sustainability organization
Planet Drum was founded in 1973 to provide an effective grassroots approach to ecology that emphasizes sustainability, community self-determination and regional self-reliance. In association with community activists and ecologists, Planet Drum developed the concept of a bioregion: a distinct area with coherent and interconnected plant and animal communities, and natural systems, often defined by a watershed. A bioregion is a whole "life-place" with unique requirements for human inhabitation so that it will not be disrupted and injured. Through its projects, publications, speakers, and workshops, Planet Drum educates and encourages local organizations and individuals to find ways to live within the natural confines of bioregions.

Jewelry handmade from recycled glass & reclaimed silver.
Stefanie Wolf designs and creates jewelry from recycled glass and reclaimed silver, right here in San Francisco. The Recycled Elements jewelry collection is distinguished by the soft colors of the recycled glass and the elegant yet playful designs. The glass was formerly bottles, windowpanes and industrial scraps- reincarnated into beautiful glass beads. The silver is not mined, but reclaimed from old jewelry that has been melted down, and from chemical processes such as film developing that leaves a silver byproduct. Come see us at booth #104!
