Bloomin Earth features inspired ways to live green

KITCHENER – This Saturday, April 16, the fifth Bloomin Earth festival brings its unique approach to living green to Kitchener City Hall, 200 King St. West. The one-day event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Co-presented by the City of Kitchener, the festival is part of the city’s celebrations around Earth Day. Bloomin Earth demonstrates many ways to love the Earth, from re-purposed art to expert advice on sustainable living to celebrate, educate and entertain the community.

Vendors will feature goods such as upcycled clothing, accessories and jewelry; vintage and antique retailers, and environmental service providers offering innovative and inspired ways of living green.

Local musicians will perform throughout the festival, and there will also be free recycled workshops designed for all ages, including:

o creating a giant city with cereal boxes as jumbo Lego blocks
o sewing a recycled monster doll
o making a bird mask and binoculars from cardboard supplies
o making a robot statue with tin cans and metal bits

There will also be a seedling and compost workshop and a huge clothing swap.
A highlight of the festival is the REthreaded Fashion Show, where designers are challenged to create unique outfits entirely from “unloved” clothing, donated by local thrift stores. Organized by STRUTT Central of Peterborough, the designers present their creations to a panel of judges, who select one as the REdesigner of 2011.
