Doh how did I miss this! Thanks for being one of the few booths focused on environmental concerns at Makerfaire. The sustainability zone was too sparse! There was a demo of new soil-based dyes that was interesting (called Bengala).

@mihow yes Maker Faire "ghettoized" sustainability into a remote corner, we had very low traffic. Glad you found us anyways!
