Come and trade or give away stuff you don’t need for stuff you can use

The Zero Waste Team is sponsoring a trading meetup following the Zero Waste forum on reducing waste over the holidays. Holiday decor, wrapping, cards and items that would make great stocking stuffers especially welcome!

Cayla and Mary invite you to bring items for trading and chatting about a zero waste lifestyle.

This is all about creating community while decluttering and passing stuff along to those who might use it. (Mary says, at it’s worst, it could be called “trading stuff you don’t need for other stuff you don’t need.” )

You can pre-arrange trades on or bring what you have. Leftover items will be donated to the Refugee table. Read about how Cayla and Mary trade on Bunz here.

Mary will bring kombucha scoby’s for trade and give a tasting of a few varieties of homemade kombucha. If you have some swing-top bottles or empty kombucha bottles, please bring them along!

Plant swap

Plants make nice gifts. If you’re ready to divide up your house plants (succulents?) bring them along or any outdoor plants that are still available.
