Thank you for contacting me. I visited your website, and I love
your concept/term of 'Unnatural Resources'! I think it does
have a lot of more life, curiosity, and mystery to it than 'Solid
Waste', which does sound dead and inert. I think you have truly
captured the idea of resources moving and cycling through.
Keep up the good fight!

Mrs. and Mr. Ponder
I saw the article in the Daily Reflector about the Unnatural Resources
Institute and it reminded me how important of a role the Institute's
programs played in my choice to study sustainable architecture. The
principles of this organization are the foundation of what all sustainable
practices emerge from; culturing creative thought on how to limit
consumption of natural resources and reuse what we already have, the
unnatural resources. Emerging in a field of sustainable architect,
Planning, and Interior Design today I have many colleagues who share
in this belief and understand the need of all programs that foster
sustainable education and advancement.
We applaud your program and look forward to its continued growth.

"The Unnatural Resources Fair has provided citizens with a hands-on,
visible means of seeing how we can all be a part of saving natural
resources. When we create things from products which have already
natural resources in their production, we save these same resources
depletion. It is a win-win situation."
"Learning the importance of reusing materials is key to our
able to support future generations. Jackie Ponder and the Unnatural
Resources Institute certainly have the right idea!"
"Jackie Ponder and her volunteers have given the
citizens and school children of Pitt County an unparalleled example
conservation packaged in a fun, competetitive, learning experience
everyone. My family, including my father-in-law from Germany have
items in the fair and taken home many a prize."

My daughter has been a participant in tile “Resources Fair”
frequently and each time winning first place trophies. I greatly feel
this is a great occasion and an unusual way to gain first time recognition
and your child (ren) will feel like a stars for a day and even weeks
in their schools.
The “UNNATURAL RESOURCES FAIR” “is more than fun
it is a home-time experience that is recyclable in memory “.
