This past Saturday, BUST teamed up with Pussy Powerhouse to host Zero Waste, a day aimed towards a sustainable future through fashion, food and art! With over 50 vendors, events, classes, and workshops, the day was filled with interactivity, inspiration and excitement.
Some highlights included the classic and intricate clothing from Dusty Rose Vintage, the nourishing and replenishing serums from Apoterra, the reusable collapsible drink cups from Stojo, and interactive community during workshops and lectures. At the Zine Making Workshop, event-goers got the chance to customize personalized vision boards and posters with BUST’s very own Creative Director, Laurie Henzel. Crafters also made their very own macramé plant hangers using Hoooked's Zpagetti yarn, made from recycled t-shirt fabric, with none other than Debbie Stoller, BUST's Editor-in-Chief and bestselling craft book author. And visitors were given the life-altering opportunity to switch to renewable energy, provided by Green Mountain Energy.
Attendees left with custom clothes from our vendors, new books and outfits from our book and clothing swap, free DivaCups, reusable DIY food wraps from the DIY Reusable Beeswax Food Wraps workshop, and more.
You can check out the alternative lifestyle options for greener goodies from our sponsors Green Mountain Energy, Lunapads, Hoooked, The Wally Shop, Cup Zero, Bring Your Own, Diva Cup and thredUP. Scroll down to catch some of our photos from the event to relive the fulfilling fun of sustainability.
