Annual Holiday Gift Event.
Sometimes, one of the hardest parts of wanting to give gifts that are friendly to the environment is knowing where to look. Look no further than the 4th Annual Check Em Off, Green Holiday Gift Event happening on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at the Marshall Community Center Gym between 10 am and 4 pm.
Bring your holiday list, check everyone off in a "green" way. Check Em Off, Green brings together over 60 local vendors with "green cred". "You might buy handmade chocolates and other sweets, a belt made from upcycled bicycle tires, a gift certificate to a Segway tour of Vancouver or one of the other thousands of items available. Our focus will be on products that are locally sourced, made of reclaimed material, or support a sustainable lifestyle in some way. We work to make this a unique and diverse shopping experience for everyone." ~The Reuser
