Earth Day For The Whole Family
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Whole Foods, and the City of Greenville are partnering to celebrate Earth Day in a daylong event that offers the entire family opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle.
The celebration will take place on Saturday, April 22 at Whole Foods on Woodruff Road, and kicks off at 8 a.m. with the Habitat ReStore’s furniture drive. The ReStore will have a truck available to collect gently used furniture, appliances and housewares for donation to one of its three Greenville locations. Donating household goods is a sustainable alternative to throwing them away, and proceeds from the sale of these goods at area ReStores are invested back into the mission of Habitat Greenville.
The City of Greenville will also be onsite selling compost bins for $20 each, encouraging people to reduce household food waste. Additional events will include a free Southern Om yoga class, a Buddha Bowl pop up lunch, a science presentation, and a free kid's craft.
