To celebrate Earth Day 2018, Sustainable Warwick, in collaboration with the Village and Town of Warwick and Wickham Works, will host a pop-up re-use event.  

Last year’s Too Good To Toss community swap was a huge success. People cleaned out their closets  and basements and generously donated enough items that would have otherwise filled 12 dumpsters. Volunteers sorted and arranged the goods into categories to make them easy to “shop.” More than 500 people took home artwork, clothing, tools, housewares, sports equipment, craft materials, baby gear and more!

“As a volunteer I watched peoples’ faces light up as they stumbled upon exactly what they had been needing or wanting. Kids fawned over bicycles that they could ride home. I spotted a gorgeous tapestry, and one guy got an entire eight-piece drum set. A group of three roommates told me that, until TGTT, they had one cereal bowl between them!” -Payton Swenson, Volunteer

“As Warwick’s Municipal Historian I’d like to commend the originators and implementers of this inspiring event which I would regard as one of the most successful community building exercises I’ve observed in my many years of research and writing on our town. It brought people of all backgrounds together in a common endeavor of giving, and taking, tangible household objects of real value and mutual benefit.”  – Richard Hull, Professor

“TGTT is a great moment when the Warwick community comes together, the best kind of ‘give and take’ where everyone wins. And the fact that it takes place on Earth Day and keeps tons and tons of ‘stuff’ out of the landfills, means that the planet wins as well.”  – Geoff Howard, Chair, Sustainable Warwick.  

This Earth Day, don’t kick your unwanted things to the curb, donate them on Saturday, April 21 from 10 AM-4 PM. Shop for free on Sunday April 22 from 10 AM-4PM. Stanley Deming Park, Basketball Court, Warwick

TREECYCLE 2018

Sustainable Warwick will partner with Wickham Works for their third annual  Treecycle, a hands-on art experience for kids and adults. On Sunday, April 22, from 10-4, at Stanley Deming Park, local artists will craft  tree sculptures using materials salvaged from the waste stream. Activities will include “making stations” for a variety of children’s crafts. Vendors will sell up-cycled goods made with repurposed materials. There will be live music and an Eco Raffle. The event will close at 7 PM with a walk through an illuminated “forest.” More info at http://www.wickhamworks.org/
