Live Thrive

Live Thrive

Live Thrive is an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization working since 2010 to create a community that cares about a healthy and sustainable environment. We started as a blog sharing sustainable efforts of individuals, communities and local businesses large and small. The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) facility is a premier program of Live Thrive. It is a permanent drop-off facility that aims to improve our environmental health by encouraging reuse and diverting thousands of pounds of household hazardous waste, bulky trash and other hard-to-recycle items from Metro-Atlanta landfills and water systems. CHaRM also accepts sorted single-stream items for those who do not have access. All operations expenses for CHaRM are paid from grants, donations and recycling fees.

#artistspotlight Edwin C Lester was born in Philadelphia, PA. He is a self-taught artist who brings a very sophisticated and technically advanced style of realism to his figurative and atmospheric paintings. His work centers on themes that are important and personal to him. The narrative approach allows the artist to convey an emotion, a moment in time as if reading without the turning of pages. For the artist, art and life are one, and life and his belief in the teachings of the Bible should leave no canvas unpainted, for the stories are many.

Edwin Lester is an award-winning artist at major art events, fairs, and shows. His work is currently collected and sought after worldwide.
