Maker stations include:

  • Make your own cleaning supplies (be extra green and bring your own container!)
  • Make your own button using recycled book covers
  • Make your own body sugar scrub or deodorant (be extra green and bring your own container!)
  • Plant a succulent
  • Watch a demonstration of a 3D Printer (wood filaments and vegetable-based plastic!)
  • Learn how to upcycle clothing like sweatshirts into projects like pet beds
  • Pledge how you plan on going green in the upcoming year

Participants will leave with samples of projects and ideas to continue making eco-friendly products and reusing consumables on a daily basis!

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or more information, please contact Kim Kane, kmkane@ucsd.edu.
