On Saturday, AUGUST 8 the second ever SWAP/DROP will be taking over the southwest side of Bellevue Park!! (Kensington Market, fyi) It runs from 11:30am -6 :30pm We will have an ArtSpace set up for people of all ages to make crafts, hang out and get creative in whatever way you’d like plus of course, the Swap/Drop :]
Give/Get free stuff
Work on projects with some really creative people (maybe I can host a workshop or two)
OFFICIAL GROUP: SWAP/DROP (join to stay updated or volunteer for the next one) ++Share this event with your friends!
We had such a great time hearing your stories, painting pinecones and doing scavenger hunts with you! A big thanks to everyone who was so supportive of this idea. I hope to see you back again :] Keep in mind, the Swap/Drop wasn’t only created to have free fun and get free stuff. I created this to inspire others to think differently about unnecessary consumerism and the role we play in waste management. If we buy less, share more & think differently about what is considered junk, we can limit lots of waste ending up in the dump and make cool art/furniture at the same time. Who knows, maybe the best things in life really are free.
A painting lots of people added paint to on June 6th, 2015 – the first Swap/Drop
“The best way to manage waste is to
not produce it at all”
–Keeping Our Earth Green by Nancy F. Castaldo
It is impossible to absolutely stop producing garbage/waste. But you can become aware of how much waste enter our landfills each year.
Many things can be done to reduce the amount of waste you contribute:
Make art! Recycle! Donate unwanted items!
Look for objects that use minimal packaging! Think twice before upgrading your electronics!
Buy re-usable products like bags, water bottles, cutlery and feminine products!
Get creative. Inspire others. Live for today and tomorrow.
