This Week in Sustainable NYC (7/15-7/21)



I had a great time this past weekend at the Bust Zero Waste Conference! It was a super sweaty (NO AC, ah) event, but also lots of fun! They had cool vendors (Thred Up, Stojo and more!), DIY workshops (I made a cool macrame planter with recycled fibers from Hoooked!), and a wide scope of panel topics! I hope they do this event again!


This week though - lots of other fun events!
