We’re thrilled to report that Portland Greenfest 2016 was a big success!
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 turned consumer products into beautiful works of art. We heard some great music, watched an incredible kids’ yoga demonstration, and chowed down on some delicious burritos and poutine!
