There will be an activity where attendees can bring their own recyclable container or use a provided one to make their own hanging plant. Soil and seeds will be provided. There will be a game where two people will compete to see who can sort out trash and recyclables from each other the quickest. There will also be a receptacle where people can bring their single use plastic bags to be recycled and another receptacle for people to drop off clothing that will be recycled and brought to a donation center.
