Plant Seedlings for Trashion Fashion

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
Plant seedlings in eggshells inside KNOX’s greenhouse (located at 75 Laurel St., Hartford, CT 06106).

WHY EGGSHELLS?
They are a very natural and nutritious way to support the seedling as it grows. Plus, anytime we can show people that plastic isn’t needed, we are very happy!

WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE SEEDLINGS?
Since 2012 Trashion Fashion, with support from its partners, has given away eggshell seedlings to its event attendees. KNOX and YOU help make that possible. We all love the planet and that love starts in the smallest form — a seed.

The Trashion Fashion event is zero-waste. But just reducing the waste created isn’t enough. We want to leave the city greener than we found it. So, by giving away seedlings, we can all help create a greener city together.

IF I VOLUNTEER, CAN I HAVE SOME SEEDLINGS?
Of course! Come, hang out, enjoy some good conversations, get your hands dirty and have some seedlings.
