One response to “Sustainable Living Forum

  1. Over 25 people at tonight’s forum to learn about reduce/regift/reuse Holiday Shopping. Judith from Goodwill spoke of their 16 retail/one boutique/two outlet stores where they repurpose old items/furniture for resale. They have a youth program for 18 to 24 year olds to learn to refurbish furniture. She brought an example of a wooden sewing machine stand which had been revarnished, plus dishes/candles/vases from their store, selling at much less than new prices. Then Shannon from Pop Cycle (9 years old store on 4th Avenue) which features art from local artists/creative people who repurpose stuff into art objects or household gifts. Anita also spoke who takes glass and fuses it into concrete to create boxes, planters using recycled molds. Black Friday coming up on 4th Avenue, using recycled gift wrapping.
    Next Sustainable Forum at Laura Tanzer’s will be on Nov. 16 re: food waste. Donna from Delectables Catering said now she is hosting private dining parties for less than 25 people at 1st/427 E. Limberlost. Call her at 520 884-9289.
