the CALGARY BABY AND TOT SHOW

GOES GREEN! 

 

                                   Vermiposting and Upcycling

 

Join us for a FREE fun and creative hands-on-learning experience.

Make a flower pot using recycled plastic bottles and corrugated cardboard. Learn how worms can get rid of your kitchen waste and make an organic fertilizer for a garden or your flowerpot.

All materials are provided.

 

   At the Calgary Baby and Tot Show we are taking on a new direction in decor for the production. We realize the beautiful balloon arches and towers add color to the show but they have a negative impact on our environment when the show is over. They are not recyclable and end up in a landfill for MANY years.

This show you will notice fewer balloons and in addition you will see "toppers"on all of the signage, these have been designed especially for the Calgary Baby and Tot Show by Elizabeth, owner and founder of Ciclomanias. They can either be used show after show or recycled after  therefore reducing our footprint.

See below a portion of their Production process and check out the website to learn more. We all can make an impact in a positive way if we are aware of choices.               

"We produce environmentally friendly hand-crafted goods. All of our products are made from post-consumer materials such as corrugated cardboard and plastic bottles, which we recycle and transform into a wide variety of decorative and useful products" 

"The unique pieces of art that we produce are elaborated by a passionate, artistic and energetic team. Ciclomanías has had the opportunity to employ people from different vulnerable sectors, such as immigrants, single moms, and indigenous people. In addition to this social empowerment, Ciclomanías works hard to reduce its ecological footprint, including environmental impacts associated with the manufacture of these Art and crafts as well as with its final disposal."Ciclomanias_250-x-250-0001.jpg
