Your scooter comes with a 4 stroke 150cc engine and fully automatic transmission.  The comfortable perforated Nylon seats can fit up to two riders, and wouldn’t leave you with a numb behind.  The low profile10-13 inch tires offer a large contract surface, which can be extremely usefully for long rides (plus they look super cool!).

Art Fire and Trees for the Future: The Together we Grow Program

For every new artisan member who signs up at Art Fire, They will plant a tree in an ecologically distressed region. Helping to save the plant has never been so easy! With just a simple click of your mouse, you can be a part of global change. Their goal is one million members in 24 months, that’s one million much needed trees.

Art Fire works closely with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future, an agroforestry resource center known for low administrative overhead costs and dramatic environmental impact. Since 1988, Trees for the Future has planted nearly 50 million trees over 25,000 acres of land in thousands of communities across the globe. It is calculated that these trees remove approximately one million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually.
Trees do more than just enrich our atmosphere. Trees planted in ecologically distressed areas improve the quality of life for people and animals living in the region. Trees minimize erosion, help prevent flooding, supply food for animals, provide shade for farmers, offer fertilizer, give shelter, supply medicine and offer a source of lumber for indigenous people.
When you join Art Fire, you can be a part of this global change. Our Together we Grow Program works to rebuild forests in Honduras, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Senegal, India, and the Philippines. These are some of the places hit hardest by logging companies and climate change. They are also home to many of the last remaining rain forests, which work to clean our atmosphere of carbon dioxide build-up.
Already, more than 6.4 million acres of rainforest have been destroyed. It is estimated that over 50,000 animals are lost to extinction every year due to deforestation. You can be part of undoing years of havoc wrecked by development and pollution.
When you become a member, you choose where your tree is planted. You can even receive a virtual tree and shovel to help actually plant a physical tree in the distressed region you have selected!
By signing up for membership, you can help fight global warming and improve the quality of life for people worldwide. All you have to do is point and click. So what are you waiting for? Join Art Fire’s free artisan community today!

After many long nights and massive amounts of caffeine artfire.com is up and running.  We know you’ve been waiting patiently, and now that patience is going to pay off.  Now our bleary eyed programmers are anxiously awaiting your feedback.  The Art Fire community is your community.  Your feedback will drive the future direction of our site. So give us your feedback; let us know what you think.  But first, here’s some more about Artfire.com.

So, what is Art Fire?

Art Fire is a free interactive artisan community.   Our purpose is to bring artisans and art buyers together.  Sign up is free, fast, and easy.  We only list handmade items crafted by creative artists eager to sell their work. Artisans get the opportunity to post and sell their items without being charged site fees.   Art lovers get direct contact with artists. Sellers name the prices, payment method, and shipping.  When you buy something off Art Fire, you’re buying directly from the artist and supporting handmade arts.

But Art Fire is so much more than just buying and selling.   Art Fire is a living community, a sea of creative thought.  We give you the opportunity to meet fellow artists or art lovers, get to know new people, make friends, and exchange ideas, and positively impact your world.

For every new member who signs up at Art Fire, we will plant a tree in an ecologically distressed region of your choosing.  You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home, or even your chair.   All you have to do is click, there’s no cost to you.   We fund the tree planting as a way of showing our commitment to creating a green artisan community.   Our goal is one million members in 24 months, that’s one million much needed trees for mother earth. Go here for more information about our Together We Grow program.

In addition to saving the planet, we also support artists.   In our daily newsletter, Art Daily, we offer business advice for increasing traffic, selling more items, and learning new ways to sell more.   This is serious, practical advice which is tailored directly to the art community.  

So go ahead, browse our craft selection.  Do some exploring, see what other artists are doing.  See firsthand what we’re all about, and then join our community.  While we still have some work to do, together we’re headed in the right direction.
