2023 Activities Announced!

 In addition to connecting with many environmentally-related  vendors, Expo visitors will enjoy fun family-friendly activities at this year’s Expo.

Clothing Swap: Sponsored by The Chaya Movement, Expo attendees can bring their gently used adult clothing to be “swapped”. Donate your items, and browse other items for free reuse. Thanks to support from the University of Washington Tacoma.

Electronics Recycling Drop-Off: Everyone has “that drawer” of old electronics that no longer work, but don’t belong in the landfill. An electronics recycling truck will be on-site to collect old electronics for responsible recycling and disposal. Thanks for support from the University of Washington Tacoma.

Pop-Up Forest: What could our urban and built environment look and feel like with more trees? The City of Tacoma’s Urban Forestry team will be on-hand to guide guests through this interactive experience.

Food Trucks: Local food vendors will set up in Tollefson Plaza to provide hungry Expo attendees with delicious food sourced from local ingredients and food producers.

More activities coming soon…
