Saturday, November 23, 2013 10:00am to 5:00pm Midtown Global Market 920 E. Lake St., Minneapolis $1 Donation/person accepted at the door
Do It Green! Minnesota is hosting a Green Gifts Fair at Midtown Global Market. Throughout the market, there will be more than 75 local eco-vendors selling their green, recycled, fair-trade and organic gifts. Plus there will be food samples. The 2014 Do It Green Directory is out, and you can pick one up while you are there.
Since November is WE CAN GIVE BACK MONTH here at Family Fun Twin Cities, this could be a two-fer opportunity. Do a little socially conscious Christmas shopping and be green at the same time. The creator’s of this Fair ask that you bring your own reusable shopping bags, coffee mug and plate and silverware set to reduce your waste at the event. You can also bring your old holiday lights to drop off for recycling. (I’d put my grade-schooler in charge of both of those things.) Make it a really green (and fun) outing by leaving the car at home and bussing it. Download a Metro Transit pass here for a free bus or lightrail ride!
