Our Green Statement, by Michael Ripper

My father and I have long talked about global warming. Ever since the early 80's, when he designed the Planet Earth series for Time Life Books, he explained to me what could happen if we ALL don't start doing our part. I long wondered what could be done, besides recycling that would really give some meaning to me. It all started when I was attending East Carolina University School of Art. In my wood studio class, there was a scrap bin that always had fantastic pieces of hardwood that students were just throwing away. Large scraps! Scraps that I could make something with! Well, needless to say, I collected and hauled these scraps around with me for 5 years! Then I finally decided to make cutting boards as Christmas gifts for friends and family as well as a few to sell for holiday money. As I gave them away and sold them, I realized that each of those boards had an amazing story behind it....one that would have never been told, had I not recycled all of that wood from the scrap bin! This has become my philosophy for everything that I make now. The wood that I use for my cutting boards is native Appalachian hardwood (Cherry, Maple, Walnut, and Poplar) mostly from Avery, Watauga, and neighboring counties. Some of the wood is lumber that has been cleaned up from the many wind storms and floods. By using this wood and other recycled wood, I am helping to clean up our beautiful mountains, and prevent forest fires, but mostly, I am passing on nature’s beauty to someone else, and maybe, just maybe, they will think of something that they can do too...
