Happy Earth Day! Today and every day, it's important we remember that our planet was not made for human exploitation. We cannot continue to consume and destroy for the sake of our own convenience. Don't discount any small actions--recycling/composting, turning the lights off, taking shorter showers, never flushing the toilet (jk)--because danger lies in counting on other people! Let's all do our part and show our home the love and respect it deserves.

Hi AU friends! Come trade your gently-used clothing, shoes, and accessories at a FREE Summer Swap Shop on Friday, August 9 from 2:00-6:00 PM at Wunder Garten (1101 First St NE). An afternoon of drinks, food trucks, and live music! Bring items in any condition - ‘unswappables’ will go to our textile recycling table hosted by DC Sustainable Fashion Collective.♻️ We hope to showcase how swapping goods is a smart way to keep products out of the landfill and preserve natural resources. Entry is free! Learn more at http://bit.ly/summerswapshop2019
