The annual Recycling Factory event is taking place again at the Helsinki’s Cable Factory on 26th-27th of April. There is a variety of things to see and do including spiritual nourishment for people of all ages. The novelties of the year are a sauna made of trash by artist Kaisa Salmi and a bloggers’ flea market.

Thousands of ecodesign products for sale at the Sales market
More than 70 exhibitors display thousands of products made out of recycled materials or in sustainable way. There is for instance clothes, utensils, and decorative items for sale. This year there is also a wide variety of vintage and second hand products. It’s a great venue to find for example a gift for upcoming Mother’s day or something else for the summer. There is also a simultaneous event on organic cosmetics.

Recycle your dispensable items
Bring your dispensable items for the “Free of charge” market of the event. You may also take with you for free products from the “Free of charge” market. In addition, you can bring your electric waste (broken or unbroken) and household toxic waste to the recycling points at the inner yard – could the spring-clean be any more easier!

Get inspired and learn new things at the workshops
At the workshops you can make i.a. picture collage, textile jewellery, a dress or a lap top case out of recycled materials with the instructors. You can also bring your own clothes and repair them or even bring your old computer and separate valuable metals from it. You can also learn many things such as growing sprouts, reuse of textile rags, learn languages or even how to play a piano. Come and see how the idea of recycling has broke through to many areas of life! And if you still haven’t got your bicycle repaired, you can do it at the bicycle workshop, located at the inner yard where the specialists are there to help you.
