At a time when global recycling markets are in flux, the market for textiles is growing and adapting to new reuse opportunities. Join WSRA for a behind-the-scenes look at how unwanted textiles move from drop-off collection sites to new homes and new products in neighborhoods around the world.
At this Washington Recycles Every Day (WRED) event, participants will learn from topic experts from every facet of the textile recovery, reuse, retail and recycling marketplace and tour Seattle Goodwill’s new Job Training and Education Center and main processing center, and Buffalo Industries.

There's a biochar workshop on April 27-28 from 9-4:00 in Woodinville. It only costs $35, and you'll get to take home a biochar stove of your own which can be used on your farm. The flyer is attached.
It is hosted at Morethana Farm which is located in Woodinville next to 21 Acres. The farm is co-leased by Antioch University, Pacific Bamboo Resources, and SeaChar, and the goal of the farm is to become a permaculture education center.
This workshop is made possible by a grant to Antioch given by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc.
