The Reuse and Recycling Fair takes place from 12-4pm on Saturday 23 June. It is a free event for all the family at the Phoenix Centre in Mollison Drive, Wallington.
Everyone is invited to come along to learn about recycling and lots of new and exciting ways to reduce waste. There will be fun activities including a ‘Swish’ clothing exchange, furniture repair demonstrations, recycled product displays and children’s storytelling with Professor Kayoss – a local performance artist and storyteller who uses cycle-powered contraptions recycled from discarded material.
The Fair will also feature The Vine Project’s Kidstop bus with its range of affordable, good quality children’s clothes, toys, books and nursery equipment.
Visitors are invited to bring along any unwanted clothes and books for a ‘Swish’ – a clothing and book swap activity where you can drop off unwanted items and pick up something new for free.
The event is organised by furniture reuse charity The Vine Project, based in Mitcham, and environmental charity BioRegional, based in Hackbridge. It provides an opportunity for Sutton residents to learn about sustainability through practical demonstrations.
This event is part of a three year project called Community Visions run by BioRegional and funded by City Bridge Trust. It aims to help make Sutton the first sustainable ‘One Planet Borough’ , creating an environment where local communities thrive and lead healthy, happy lifestyles within a fair share of the Earth’s resources.
