THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (November 4, 2019) – The Woodlands Township will host the 3R Bazaar on Saturday, November 9, 2019, from 8 a.m. to noon at The Woodlands Farmer’s Market at Grogan’s Mill, 7 Switchbud Place. Join the Township in celebrating the environment by bringing select items for free recycling, learning about local recycling opportunities, supporting local artists who feature recycled materials and participating in green activities for the whole family.
To promote recycling beyond curbside service, attendees are asked to bring used batteries (Alkaline AA, AAA, C, D and 9V), eyeglasses, textiles and oral care products for recycling. Residents can earn scholarship money for their village by bringing alkaline batteries for the Village Recycling Challenge. The event will also include secure on-site document shredding for a donation of five cans of food or $5 per box. All proceeds benefit Interfaith Food Pantry.
Attendees can shop for one-of-a-kind wares made from recycled materials and visit educational displays to learn about reducing waste with reusable alternatives, including stainless steel straw giveaways. Visit the Reuse Workshop and learn to turn a vinyl record sleeve into a gift box along with other sustainable holiday decorating ideas. Exclusive 3R Bazaar reusable bags will also be provided, courtesy of Gullo Dealerships.
Children are invited to participate in crafts and games promoting environmental stewardship and recycling education. Renowned eco-impressionist Grant Manier will also demonstrate his process of creating “coolages” out of recycled materials and children are welcome to create holiday masterpieces of their own to take home.
