The GAS Green Committee encourages artists to implement all energy-saving upgrades or strategies that are compatible with their studio operations. Every increase in combustion efficiency or reduction in fuel use results in lower levels of emissions. 

As Advocates for a cleaner world, GAS encourages its members to incorporate sustainable energy resources into their practice whenever possible. Glass artists have an opportunity to present the use of renewable fuels to the public in a unique and awe-inspiring manner. By using biogas or other renewable fuels, artists can demonstrate the power and versatility of alternative fuels within the exquisite backdrop of glass artwork.
