Featured Event:

Meaningful Movies Film Festival

One of the three movies being shown is:

Garbage: the revolution starts at home

Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home is a feature documentary about how the 
family household has become one of the most ferocious environmental predators 
of our time.

Concerned for the future of his new baby boy Sebastian, writer and director Andrew 
Nisker takes an average urban family, theMcDonalds, and asks them to keep every 
scrap of garbage that they create for three months. He then takes them on a journey 
to find out where it all goes and what it's doing to the world.

·      More than 1,000 communities have screened the film worldwide, 
               including Australia, South Africa, Europe, and all 
               over North America.
·      3,000 people have joined the revolution in the Garbage! community
·      More than 200 schools, universities and colleges have bought 
                the film throughout the English speaking world

We would like to thank Rick Turner of Wallingford Neighbors in helping to 
facilitate the availability and screening rights of each of the films being 
shown this year.

Featured Exhibitor

Since 1994, Second Use has helped contractors and homeowners recover 
reusable building materials from their remodeling and demolition projects.  
And, through our retail outlet, our customers have in turn helped to find new 
homes for the material.  This process provides both a more sustainable 
alternative to buying new and a mechanism for passing on the stories that 
inhabit the homes and businesses throughout the Puget Sound region.

Join them for “Salvage Sundays” on the 4th Sunday of each month for live 
music, sales, and workshops.
