Whether you’re organizing and running a garage sale or just shopping at one, has the concept of recycling ever crossed your mind? For some people, garage sailing is more than just a hobby, it’s a a way to show they care about the environment and how to revive items that normally wouldn’t be recycled. Perhaps the next time you’re shopping at an estate sale, and the sign reads “everything for sale,” you might consider to stock up on the leftover under-the-sink household cleaners – I bet you get a solid deal on those!
This blog entry came as a result of another great blog I recently read titled, “Recycle Revival built around community yard sale,” authored by Stacie Hidek. It just so happens that there was a community yard sale event they named “Recycle Revival,” and how very fitting. Located in greater Wilmington, North Carolina just a few days ago, this event combined a huge yard sale, an eco-friendly business showcase and a handmade arts and crafts fair with food and music, turning out to be an amazing community fun festival.
The cool part about the items on display at the arts fair was that they were all handmade from recycled, reused or other earth-friendly materials. The Green Living Business Showcase gave people an opportunity to check out local businesses and their eco-friendly products and services.
It sounded like an awesome time! An idea and event I hope many other cities will adopt this year and encourage recycling, not just through yard sales and tag sales but with the support of all the companies promoting green services and products to make less of a carbon footprint.
