Earth Day Is Sunday | What Are YOUR Plans? | #spon #GreenWorks

Green Works is participating in a Reverse Graffiti initiative. What is Reverse Graffiti? Basically, you take a dirty area and create art by cleaning only parts of it. Some companies actually hire graphic artists to create advertisements by cleaning a dirty area.

What do you think?

I think it’s pretty cool actually! As long as the photos are in good taste, it’s amazing to see just how dirty a place you wouldn’t glance at twice actually is!

Do you have a wall in your community that would be a great place for Reverse Graffiti? What image would you create (if you could) for your community?

Green Works uses their all natural cleaners to make their Reverse Graffiti art projects. What are your plans to help clean up your community on Earth Day this Sunday?

The artisit for the Green Works Reverse Graffit mural tells how he does it in this YouTube Video: Green Works Reverse Graffiti: How to from the Artist

    I like this concept. I enjoy seeing beautiful greffitti around town.

  7. Jessica Hays says:

    I have never heard of reverse graffiti before, but that is so cool! I love how it makes things so pretty even though it is out of dirt. It is truely an art. I could never be able to do that!

  8. Jenn says:

    I am hoping for nice weather this year. I like to plan a lunch in the park with the kids. maybe a nice walk by the water.

  9. jamie villari says:

    It’s amazing how clean simple green makes a dirty wall!Pictures are amazing

  10. Christina says:

    Wow.. I love the one with the trees. Such talent.

    This weekend we are planting at tree at my moms in memory of my dad! Last weekend we volunteered with a beach/park clean up.

  11. Jennifer Hiles says:

    That is so neat, I’d love to see it under bridges and in tunnels around where I live!

  12. Christine M says:

    Very interesting idea! To be honest I won’t be doing anything for Earth Day except go to Church and maybe take the kids out to eat at a local restaurant afterwards

  13. Noelle B. says:

    Beautiful idea- to turn something grimy into something new and earthy!

  14. amanda roach says:

    i saw this video..its amazing.

  15. Shirley says:

    Really creative stuff.

  16. Holly says:

    i love this idea, to make something beautiful out of something ugly

  17. Stephen N. says:

    These are great! I also can’t wait for Earth Day. Target and the Disney Store are giving away free reusable bags on Earth Day. But you have to bring in at least 5 plastic bags to be recycled at the Disney Store.

  18. April G says:

    That is amazing- and really cool!

  19. Tracy Awalt Juliano says:

    I had never heard of this before, but what an insanely clever idea! I love it!!

  20. teressa oliver says:

    That’s a really cool idea and the youtube videos are great

  21. Carol Buchman says:

    This is such a neat concept! Love it! I can’t think of any place in my community that would work at but whoever thought of doing that is extremely creative. I would create flowers!

  22. Tammy S says:

    I think the Reverse Graffiti is amazing. I hope more people are aware of what’s going on around them. Each Earth Day our family goes out and works with our church to plant trees.

  23. Heather Augenstein says:

    This is so cool! Though I am not artistic (besides beginning able to color in the lines), I would love to try something like this with a stencil. I had never heard about this until recently.

    Sorry, we aren’t doing anything that creative on Earth day. We are going to visit my parents and also visit their neighbors because they have 1 week old baby goats…awwww.

  24. Alan Tong says:

    I will probably go biking at the park with my sister on Sunday. Thanks!

  25. Kristy Babcock says:

    This is really cool. I wouldn’t really ever think about all the gunk and dirt that had built up on everything over the years, but this is a good reminder of just how dirty our world really is. It’s also really cool to know that a natural product can clean the built up gunk that well.

  26. Sarah L says:

    I’ll be volunteering at the Denver Botanic Gardens for their Earth Day Celebration.

  27. Irene says:

    A lot of gardening, planting many flowers and veggies

  28. Joy Pablo says:

    We live in Virginia Beach, Virginia so for Earth Day this Sunday we will be visiting Mount Trashmore. They have several activities planned for Earth Day.

  29. Elizabeth Groves says:

    That is so very cool! I’m sure downtown of the city I live in has plenty of places that could benefit from reverse Graffiti!

  30. polly says:

    we plan to plant some flowers with our little 3 year old grandson when he is over

  31. Ooh! Sounds thrilling! Would love to see this!

  32. These are amazing pieces of art and real eye opener as to how dirty it is and how well green works products work.

  33. kelly t says:

    This kind of unique art carries a great message about how dirty we can be

  34. Betty Baez says:

    I saw this on their Facebook page I thinks it’s absolutely amazing! Not sure what we will do on Sunday I guess I should check the local paper if anything fun for the kids is going on

  35. Rust says:

    Amazingly creative!

  36. Fiona N says:

    I also never heard about a Reverse Graffiti initiative! It’s really an awesome idea! Love it 🙂

  37. Lucy Lopez says:

    Thats really cool.

  38. Heather Augenstein says:

    Hubby’s Gram is still in the hospital. His Mom and him are going to go visit her. Child and I will go over to my parents’ house.

  39. Heather Augenstein says:

    I am entering several giveaways and they are asking me to leave a comment on this one post. Sorry that I am being redundant!

  40. Heather Augenstein says:

    Oh, forgot to mention that my daughter received some flower seeds and we are hoping to plant them. Depends on the weather though. It is really chilly today. Brrrrrr.

  41. Juli Guthrie says:

    I really love what they are doing with Green cleaners! I love Earth day, it always helps me and my boys get in touch with nature.

  42. Heather Augenstein says:

    We are going to a neighbor’s farm, they just had baby goats! Then we are going to plant flower seeds! It will be a surprise, as they came home from school and we have no clue what kind they are.

  43. Sarh S says:

    I love this Reverse Graffiti, I have always loved the good/cool graffiti that took talent to do, this is just absolutely amazing!

  44. Jennifer Hedden says:

    This is such a great idea! I love the neat art they create! I had never heard of reverse graffiti until now.

  45. Paul T / Pauline T says:

    OMG, I think is a great idea and would like to create a Disney themed area for children to admire and maybe inspired them to be more creative

  46. Andrew says:

    “Reverse Graffitti” certainly is a clever idea!

  47. Shannon M Gallagher says:

    Wow, I have never used Green works products but obviously they clean very well! This is an amazing idea. Graffiti is definitely an overlooked form or art but using it a positive way is awesome!

  48. Sarah says:

    Love this idea! I would love to partially clean some walls in my town with trees and flowers.

  49. I watched a few of the video’s. They amaze me! Such beautiful works of art by removing dirt. The templates he made were Awesome. I’ll never look at anyone working along side a road or bridge or tunnel the same again. We mainstream recycle, reuse bags, carry cloth, wear second hand (with discretion) and share things likes books, movies, almost anything so not so many new need made.

  50. It is amazing what creativity can do with some wonderful green products and dirt – I luv it! Keep up with the good work. The video’s are addicting to watch!

  51. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    I agree with you it is pretty neat, the one thing I think about is that they don’t over-do it then it’s not as pretty.

  52. Tiffany Hoyt says:

    That’s amazing, but I wonder how long it would last?

  53. Deborah Wallin says:

    That is such a neat idea!!! I am not an artist, capable of such a project, but would enjoy seeing those around town!

  54. Steve says:

    They can reverse graffiti my bathtub after the kids have been in it.

  55. Carrie Phelps says:

    I cannot express just how much I love this! I also posted about this on FB a few weeks ago.

  56. Tara Liebing says:

    We are going to the Earth day Celebration at our local Zoo.

  57. Lisa says:

    I love Green Works and use the general spray cleaner often.
    I believe Earth Day is everyday and go out of my way to conserve, recycle, and more each and every day. 🙂

  58. betty wojnar says:

    this is the best idea i’ve seen! so creative

  59. heather b says:

    Planted flowers with my kids in the flower bed outside@

  60. Trasina McGahey says:

    Living by LA it’s great that there’s a clean up plan going on! I do love the many areas that already have art where so much graffiti used to be. Great job!

  61. Nicole G. says:

    I cleaned up trash from along my mile long street in the rain today.

  62. Becky Kimani says:

    Wow a trip to LA and a $1000 GC is an amazing give away! And the artwork from just cleaning is amazing, very impressive!

  63. rachel b. says:

    this is a great idea and the art looks pretty awesome

  64. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    • Bekah Kuczenski says:

      Grafitti sorry….

  65. Laura Miller says:

    We love Green Works, we use it a lot here. I definitely feel better using it around the munchkins.

  66. Eileen says:

    completely amazing! I saw the video of the tunnel one and it’s incredible. They make the templates by HAND! Thanks for sharing this Heather. Yesterday we did Earth Day big by planting over a hundred trees on a tract of land. Last year, several thousand!

  67. Colleen Fuller says:

    I bought two Green Works products and got a free reusable bag with samples and coupon for more “green” products at Target!

  68. Beth R says:

    That is so amazing and beautiful! I have never heard of it before but it is truly art

  69. Kristin Sawatzke says:

    That is so cool!

  70. Edith says:

    oh, I know the perfect place in my area for this!! It’s called the Washburn tunnel. It’s in an area close to Pasadena, TX. It’s soooooo dirty and people need something pretty to look at while they wait in traffic 🙂

  71. Kathy Rambousek says:

    How cool is that! I’ve never seen reverse graffiti nor heard of it before.

  72. Erin Rok says:

    I think these murals are absolutely amazing, and to think they were made simply by cleaning away dirt!

  73. paige jagan says:

    I have started using a water pitcher with a filter instead of bottled water

  74. Sue C. says:

    The reverse graffiti is really beautiful – so much nicer than the ugly graffiti I see around cities.

  75. Jill says:

    Wow, great way to show how well this stuff can actually clean. Makes me a believer.

  76. Kathy Davis says:

    I have never heard of this. The images are awesome. What a great way to perk up a neighborhood.

  77. April Drew says:

    This is so weird. It looks cool, but making art from dirt is a bit different.

  78. Azslyn Cole says:

    yes this art is very cool i think of people would see art in more things they would be a lot more happy =}

  79. That is so cool how just using a cleaner and water they can create such beautiful images.
