Earth Week 2017

Meaford, Ontario – February 1, 2017 – Meaford’s Earth Week team is looking for wish lists and Vendors for the 2017 Earth Week RE-Use & ECO-Fair. This year’s RE-Use & ECO-Fair will be held Saturday, April 29th, from 10 am to 2 pm.

The RE-Use portion of the RE-Use & ECO-Fair is one key way the community contributes to waste reduction. The RE-Use station receives unwanted but reusable goods. The goods then are passed along to groups that request them in advance via their Wish list. Over the past 3 year’s almost three tons of goods changed hands.

Interested in submitting a Wish list for this year’s RE-Use & ECO-Fair? Please do so before Friday, March 31st.

“At the ECO portion of the Fair, it is always inspiring to see how earth-friendly vendors upcycle or repurpose items from one once useful life into another. Crystal Tower Creations, a local eco-vendor, takes items like dusty old crystal candy dishes hidden in the back of a cupboard and re-purposes them into birdbaths and feeders. They’re beautiful and unique,” commented Lindy Iversen a volunteer with Earth Week Meaford.

Do you create or produce environmentally-conscious products or services, and are you interested in showcasing or selling your wares at the ECO-Fair? Applications are due by April 3rd, 2017.

“It feels like we’re moving purposefully in the right direction”, said Jaden Calvert, a key organizer with the Earth Week team. “The RE-Use & ECO-Fair is one of many ways the Meaford community is trying to get ahead of the curve as we consciously move towards zero waste.”

What Is A Wishlist & How Is It Connected To The RE-Use & ECO-Fair?

  • The Wishlist Form is the vehicle where by groups, churches, schools and budding entrepreneurs request needed, reusable items for their organization.
  • There is no cost attached to submitting a Wishlist Form on behalf of your group.
  • There is always a deadline for receipt of the completed Wishlist Form.

Time is needed for public advertising of the Master Wishlist before the day of the RE-Use & ECO-Fair.

The published Master Wishlist does not have the names of the groups on it.

  • The RE-Use & ECO-Fair is where the exchange of stuff happens. The donated items that are dropped off are sorted and boxed by volunteers for the groups requesting the useable stuff.
  • Why is the Wishlist event connected specifically to the RE-Use & ECO-Fair?

The Fair provides a very practical venue for promoting re-use & recycling A positive, up-beat way to support Moving Towards Zero Waste efforts in our community. Spring cleaning and donating reusable items; the perfect partnership.
