From turning the thermostat down to bicycling more, attendees can learn about simple ways to protect the earth.

In partnership with the Spirit and Place festival, the free event will be themed “Home is what you make of it.” Local artists will be present to display their use of recycled items in creating art, such as ornaments, journals, hats, purses and other items.

Hands-on activities for all ages will be offered including five-minute art tables, junk sculptures, a green photo booth and a community collage with ideas on living green. A silent auction will feature a hand-painted rain barrel.

This year the event will feature Cedar Street Builders. The company was the first in Indiana to build a passive house, a home that is energy-efficient in cooling and heating. Boone REMC, a local electric utility cooperative, will be present as well.

“It’s the exposure and the education that will be able to reiterate [recycling]in every aspect of the event,” said Jennifer L. Lawrence, executive director of Boone County Solid Waste Management District said.

Those attending are encouraged to bring 10 grocery bags in exchange for a reusable bag made from recycled water bottles.
