Reuse-a-Palooza at The Plant – Shamrock edition

Bubbly Dynamics presents its spring edition of Reuse-a-Palooza at The Plant (1400 W. 46th St., Chicago) on Sun. Mar. 17 from 11am-3pm. This semiannual event provides opportunities to repair clothing and household items, safely dispose tricky-to-recycle items, and donate bicycles, gently used books, computers in any condition, 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. Plan to see our friends at Reduce Waste Chicago, PCs for People, Working Bikes, Community Glue, and many others. They’ll be on hand to repair, responsibly recycle, and discuss new strategies to reduce your environmental footprint and advocate for greater change. And bring a light-colored tshirt or tote to custom-print your own swag during the event, courtesy of Madd Science Printing Labs, a neighboring Back of the Yards business!
Plus, Bubbly Dynamics will be showcasing our in-house practices to refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle materials here at The Plant and at Bubbly. We will be 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 springtime resolutions in Whiner’s taproom — they’ll be open til 8pm. And yes, there will be green beer, naturally colored with Back of the Yards Algae Sciences’ phycocyanin, which is an extract of blue-green algae and a safe, non-toxic food colorant.
