Make Cents not to Bin it!

 Choose your own planet-saving adventure when the Garage Sale Trail comes to Kingborough this Spring.

Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said the Garage Sale Trail experience happens over four weekends from 29 October to 20 November.

“Garage Sale Trail event is a great way for residents to connect with each other, make some money and stop sending good stuff to landfill,” Cr Wriedt said.

“Council is supporting the festival to encourage more people to get involved and learn about the circular economy.

“Keeping stuff in use for as long as we can by buying or selling it at a garage sale makes sense for the planet and makes cents for participants.

“It’s the circular economy in action and it’s something all Kingborough residents can get behind.

“All residents need to do is follow the links below to register your garage sale to be part of the nationwide event.

“Between 29 October and 5 November, the Kingborough community can also join some Trail Tutorials online.

“These are a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations featuring Barry Du Bois, Annabel Crabb and Craig Reucassel; alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy.

“These sessions are hosted online and free to attend there will be a link to them on the Garage Trail part of Council’s website.

“Then, over two weekends 12 – 13 and 19 – 20 November you can be part of simultaneously hosted garage sales around the nation.

“Once you’ve signed up to host a garage sale, you get a bunch of free promotional materials, including posters, bunting and letterbox slips, as well as access to tips, tricks and support.”
