We’re thrilled to report that Portland Greenfest 2016 was a big success!

text

We had thousands of attendees join us on a beautiful Saturday, where they had the opportunity to learn about simple ways to embrace sustainability from dozens of exhibitors. Once again, our upcycled artmaking booths were loads of fun! People of all ages stopped in to use their imaginations to repurpose non-toxic manufacturing waste and used consumer products into beautiful works of art. We heard some great music, watched an incredible kids’ yoga demonstration on the Greenfest stage, and chowed down on some delicious burritos and poutine! Stay tuned for photos in the coming weeks.

Don’t forget – Greenfest is an annual event! In 2017, we’ll be celebrating on Saturday, September 9th.
