Colombia, one of the Top 10 Greenest Countries

So excited, my native country, Colombia, has been classified as one of the greenest countries in the world. The list is based on each country's Environmental Performance Index (EPI) rating which is provided by Yale University.
"It is said that Colombia is home to 10% of various species found throughout the world. Scientist have also discovered that it may be home to as many as 10 new amphibious species, including the orange-legged rain frog, as well as transparent-skinned glass frogs. With this in mind, the Colombian government has made efforts to turn the country into one that is eco-friendly. To do so, numerous national parks, some including native medicinal plants, have been opened, one of the most notable being the Orito Igni-Ande Medicinal Flora Sanctuary. Also, architects in Colombia have put down the steel and started to use bamboo, which they say is just as durable and reliable as a means to building structures. Even fashion has gone green in Colombia: designer Maria Nubia Ayala has created a line of clothing using leaves and flowers" "Top Ten Greenest Countries".

Tropical Fruit Salad Keychain

To create this keychain I got my inspiration from a Glamour magazine ad, it portrayed a fruit vendor, he had mangoes, papayas, tangerines, bananas, coconuts, pineapples, spread all over his table. The combination of color, sizes and textures was very appealing. So I decided to design this keychain, so nature inspired and "gorgeously delicious".
