Bululu's Favorite sellers ...Loran Scruggs

I found this amazing artist who works using recycled tin cans to make fun and colorful toys, her name is Loran Scruggs.

I finally meet her...well on video at least...I've been a fan of her for more than a year now, I admire her work.

From Loran profiles "I'm a metal girl, I have a large stash of bottle caps and tins cans organized in my little shop. I spend all spare moments there starting and finishing every piece.

I collect bottle caps and tin from local restaurants, friends and interested neighbors. Some decorative tins are purchased from second hand stores.

The whistle were along time in the idea bank. Years ago I was inspired by Bobby Hansons book "Working with Tin" where he shows how to make a whistle out of two pieces of tin. I increased the tin size and added bottle caps and they are."

More Eco Tips

1. TAKE YOUR NAME OFF THE LIST! Get your name removed from unwanted credit cards and insurance offers.
Go to: or call 1(888) 5 OPT OUT.

2. LOSE THE JUNK FROM YOUR TRUNK. Each 100 lbs in the car increases gas consumption 1-2%.

3. CONSOLIDATE CLEANING PRODUCTS. Use healthy multi-purpose green products. You won't need 10 different things to clean your house. That saves room under the sink and the amount of empty of half used plastic bottles.
