TerraCycle has a green up store in Port Authority during Earth Month in April. Every Thursday we’re hosting fun, free events. On April 8th we’re having a DIY scraptacular! Green-Up Shop vendors, RePlayGround and Garbage of Eden, along with craft superstar Megan Nicolay of Generation T and the supercrafty Etsy crew, will all be on site to show you how you can turn trash into treasure all by yourself. We’ll have free scrap materials to use. You’re encouraged to bring t-shirts or other materials to work with on-site. Happy upcycling!
