Live musician Tabi Sari will provide entertainment while you discover a variety of recycled, and creatively upcycled local businesses. Ride the Food Rescue bike to mix and sample a smoothie made from rescued excess fruits or get creative and make a recycled PET bottle flower! You’ll have the opportunity to view the stomach contents of a whale, or drop into a short workshop on hot and cold composting & worm farming.
Be sure to catch the upcycled fashion parade and make a pledge to reduce your plastic bag use. There will also be the chance to discover the amazing work of Tangaroa Blue, or sign your businesses up to receive assistance to reduce waste. So come along, there’s a lot to discover at the Fair!
