Then join us for a sustainable, free, zero-waste lunch and a film screening from Catalytic Clothing! Catalytic Clothing is artist/designer Helen Storey and chemist Tony Ryan. Catalytic Clothing employs textiles as a means to purify the air, allowing ordinary people to positively impact the environment by wearing everyday clothes (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Catalytic-Clothing-Clothes-that-purify-air/203320786366452).
After lunch, please join us for a CLOTHING SWAP! Is your closet overflowing with things you never wear? Tired of that old purple cardigan? Don't throw your unwanted clothes away or let them go to waste. Reduce.reuse.recycle. Bring in your clothes, drop 'em off in the designated SWAP area, and take others' clothes to your liking. It's an all-around WIN. "New" clothes, less waste. (And it's FREE.)
