Junk Art Club: The Climate Change Project – Plant a Tree Broken Mirror
March 2020

Trees are very efficient carbon capture machines. Through photosynthesis, trees absorb CO2, then store the carbon and emit oxygen. Planting trees is not the sole answer to reversing CO2 levels in the atmosphere, and scientists estimate it will require planting billions of trees to achieve significant emissions reductions.

A broken mirror and a circular piece of wood found in the alley were the source for this tree mosaic.  The mirror was cut into smaller pieces with a wheel glass cutter, and the wood was stained.  The glass pieces were glued using E6000, an industrial strength adhesive.  After the glass was glued, the wood was sealed with Polycrylic.  Club members Jackson Sanders and Marcus McQueen completed this project.
