Reuse-a-Palooza at The Plant – Halloween edition!

We’re back at it again with Reuse-a-Palooza at The Plant, a semiannual event that provides opportunities to repair clothing and household items, safely dispose tricky-to-recycle items, and donate bicycles, gently used books, and more, all the while bringing attention to strategies to reduce waste and improve environmental conditions.

We’ll be joined by an amazing group of waste-reduction and repurposing enthusiasts focusing on approaches to purchasing and consumption that make good sense economically, environmentally, and socially.

The full program and list of items accepted for repurposing/recycling/donation (and where they’ll go) is at our website:
Special for Halloween, we’ll have a costume swap: bring last year’s costume, and pick up something new! Weird & wacky accessories, nail polish, and unused makeup are all welcomed for the exchange.
We will be also offering a tour of The Plant at 2pm sharp — advance tickets are strongly suggested and may be purchased here. Stick around afterward to discuss your sustainability resolutions in Whiner’s taproom — they’ll be open til 8pm.
