Zero Waste Weekend at Hester Street Fair

With help from the Lower East Side Ecology Center, Hester Street Fair is hosting a Zero Waste Weekend, this Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 6pm, at the Fair on Hester and Essex.

  • E-Waste — computer monitors, keyboards, mice, scanners, printers, fax machines, cables, TVs, DVD players, etc. A great opportunity to get rid of the broken-down junk cluttering your closet.
  • Compost — collecting compostable items and demonstrations for setting up simple composting bins in your home.
  • Fabric and Clothing — donate your unused clothing and fabric.

Hester Street Fair Opens This Weekend

Not sure it’ll look like this, exactly, but there should be a crowd this weekend, weather permitting, at the new Hester Street Fair (where Hester St. ends at Essex).

This plot of land, part of the Seward Co-Op and smashed between the tennis courts and Seward Park Playground, has been empty a long time. It’s been repaved, new gates have been constructed, and this weekend is the coming out party for what organizers hope will be a new neighborhood institution.

the Hester Street Fair focuses on curated local goods, food and most importantly, highlights the vibrant spirit of the community.

Check it out on Saturday and Sunday, 10-6. And let us know in our bulletin board what you find.
