ZeroLandfill Seattle Upcycle Day! @ Miller Community Center
Sep 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Calling all artists, educators, inventors, makers, and crafters!

With IIDA Seattle City Center’s ZeroLandfill, you can transform “green guilt” into constructive energy. The Architecture and Interior Design Community has collected expired and unwanted material samples for reuse and creative upcycling.

You will find samples of fabric, carpet, wall covering, wood, tile, stone, glass, rubber, laminate and much more to add to your personal collection or to complete your next project!

A limited amount of bags and boxes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Maximize your ability to collect samples and think green by bringing your own bags for gathering donated materials.

Saturday, September 29
9:00am – 4:00pm
