  • Christmas Zero Waste Pop-up
    10:00 -13:00
    13/12/2020
    The Junction Reuse shop on Colson Road. will be hosting a holiday event to help minimise the use of single use plastics in gift wrapping. Just in time for Christmas and the shopping madness, the team at The Junction are helping those who might need a little inspiration or would like a one-stop-shop to purchase, create and wrap something affordable and environmentally friendly while saving time.
    Learn about Furoshiki wrapping (Japanese cloth wrapping) and gather ideas for using your kids artwork or music sheets as wrapping paper. Recycling tips for the silly season will be a plenty at this gathering.
    Purchase a planter or upcycled ceramic vessel at The Junction Reuse shop, and we will supply you with a seedling to put in it as well as some ideas for wrapping and presenting it.
    This is an ongoing event held between 10am and 1pm outside of The Junction Reuse shop on Colson Road, next to the recycling facility. We hope to see you there!
    Be sure to select that you are interested in the event to receive inspirational ideas and updates leading up to this event.
