Upcycle Pop Eco Art Market – Summer June 12, 21
June 12 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm PDTFree
This Eco-Art Market known as Upcycle Pop is an outdoor art and maker market for eco-friendly products, art, and creatively upcycled items located in the historic district of the Old Sacramento Waterfront. The market happens Saturday and Sunday mornings with different eco-friendly vendors and open art studios. Produced by and located at Atrium 916, Sacramento’s Creative Innovation Center for Sustainability at 1020 Front Street.
Outdoors with family-friendly / kid-friendly things to do- Paint a canvas, or a magnet, make chalk art, drop in for a hip hop class, take a picture with art installation wings by Yennie Zhou, play our Recycle Challange art game, catch all our phrases, and enjoy locally brewed Kombucha out of a wine glass- because it is more fun!
Tour our open artist studios and meet some of Sacramento’s most talented eco-friendly creatives. You might catch a live performance from a local band or even catch some artists upcycling discarded items. It’s always different and always a surprise.
If you’re not up on the green lingo and are asking what is upcycling? The best way to think of upcycling is that it’s like a sexier, even greener version of recycling. Upcycling adds value by transforming or reinventing an otherwise-disposable item into something of higher quality. It’s the ultimate in reuse–and we believe a whole new industry sector is shaping up around it. Old Jeans are turned into reusable shopping bags, pallets turned into urban chic furniture, and plastic bottles into Geodesic Sphere Chandeliers.
Fun eco-friendly event for those seeking a sustainable future.
sustainability – sustainable living – circular economy- upcycle – upcycling – kindness
