Zero Waste Tie-Dyeing with Natural Dyes

Monday, October 12, 5-6 PM PDT

Learn how to transform that random T-shirt you got for free at a festival last year and have only worn once into your go-to fit for zoom classes/meetings. This workshop will show you how to make natural dyes out of fruit and vegetable scraps and use it to tie-dye your clothes for a cute learn/work-from-home look. This can be done with stuff you likely already have on hand – nothing fancy needed.

Tour of Athens Services' Recycling Facility

Tuesday, October 13, 12-1 PM PDT

Do you wonder what happens to your recyclables once picked up from your home or from UCLA? 🧐 Well, they are actually delivered to what is called a Materials Recovery Facility, or a MRF for short, where people and a series of conveyor belts, screens, magnets, robots, and optical sorters sort and divide items by their material type. Hear from Brian Hunter, Assistant Operations Manager for Athens’ Sun Valley MRF, on what happens to recyclables once they are collected! This event is in partnership with UCLA's Department of Custodial and Grounds.
