Recycling and reusing building materials is the ideal way to go about repairing old houses and architecture. In a time when so much excess waste proliferates, as strong proponents of green construction arise, they need our support. Amy Nicole Swift is just that. When she’s not teaching at the university, she’s working to restore vacant Detroit properties. It’s a dirty and exhausting job, but crucial to rebuilding this iconic city. She founded Building Hugger, an architectural design-build firm, to give back to the community and breath new life into old spaces.
Check out Amy’s spring time work gear: Carhartt Mountrail Jacket, Force Performance Quarter-Zip Shirt, Sibley Denim Shorts, Soft Hands Gloves, and Wellington Boots.
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we’re all scrambling for a festive, green outfit to wear. Grab some felt and get to crafting this clover crown. It’s fun, easy, and cheap. That’s music to my ears when it comes to an art project. Pair your new accessory with the Carhartt Women’s El Paso Utility Jacket. This is such a great piece to add to your spring wardrobe. It’s covered in pockets, made of lightweight material, and has a draw cord waist. Bring on the green beer!
