Zero Waste Christmas activity happening this December! We are motivated to make this holiday season a greener by not generating waste, being crafty and thirty and by giving things we don't use a new life.

This will be an informal event with various workshops, and we encourage you to contribute your skills and knowledge so that we all learn from each other! 

What to expect? Have a look at the activities below

Clothes swap

Sometimes we are a bit bored with what's in our wardrobe, or clothes we used to wear do not fit us anymore. The best remedy to this situation is to SWAP THOSE CLOTHES! We will be hosting a clothes swap. Get a maximum of 5 items with you. You will get a token per item you get with you, which will allow you to swap with any other item brought by other people to our swap shop. Make sure they are in good conditions (i.e. no stains, no holes, and that are pretty enough for others to wear them and give them a new home). Make sure items are washed as well. 

Upcycling

Magically transforming trash to treasure! We will be making:

- an amazing wallet with milk and juice cartons

- wooden planters

- pallet wood Christmas tree

- decorations and ornamental items

- drawstring bags for veggie or Christmas bags

Home Products & Cosmetics

We can create a lot of household cleaning and decorative items as well as beauty products out of common material. We are planning to do the following (time permitting!)

- body sponge

- lip balm

- beewax food wrap 

- home cleaner

- body and face scrub

- candles

Christmas wrapping: using the drawstring bags you created or the Furoshiki method.

If any one wants to do a workshop during the event to show how to do something, please let us know.

We will welcome you with free coffee and tea. We will have wine and beers by donation. Please get some snacks and food to share!
