Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Garden-Ville is very excited to announce a history making event, the “Official Induction Ceremony into the Guinness World Records for the World’s Largest Shovel”. This shovel literally "stands tall" at over 40 feet high weighing 5,000 pounds, displayed as a symbol of Garden-Ville's commitment to reclaim, recycle and repurpose. The Garden-Ville shovel, which is made from all recycled materials diverted from the Texas Disposal Systems landfill including scrap metal and telephone poles, was designed and constructed by Garden-Ville resident artist, Chris Anderson.
“At Garden-Ville we see no limit in reusing sustainable resources to create various products, including STA certified soils, gardening supplies and art,” says Jennifer Gregory, Marketing Director for Garden-Ville. “Our mission is to divert as much as possible from the landfill and share our vision to utilize sustainable practices through composting, recycling and creating symbols such as the shovel to represent our mission.”
