• A “trashy fashion” show, so wear your best homemade outfit sourced from recycled materials.
• An ‘Upcycle Booth:’ Bring something for the sustainability-in-action ‘Bring an item, take an item’ upcycle booth – a fun way to find a new home for a like-new, no-longer-needed household item or unwanted gift you’ve been holding onto.
• Sustainability booths, staffed by vendors with unique “sustainability products” for sale, and
• Inspiring messages from a variety of speakers on the front lines of the environmental/sustainability movement.
• Snacks and drinks: premium beer and wine will be available for sale, along with a sampling of yummy snacks and desserts for free.
