Tribsters at Earth Hour in Botkyrka – upcycling candle holders, wallets and T-shirts

Earth Hour Botkyrka, Sandra och Fia

As you perhaps know Saturday 31st of March is Earth Hour. An amazing example of someone’s random idea that managed to spread and become bigger and bigger for each year, now it's taken for granted in most of our municipalities in Sweden to turn our lights off.

Botkyrka is one municipality that always takes on the climate challenges with an extra touch. Saturday was full of action and events. We held two upcycling workshops in the shopping malls of Tumba and Alby. Lots of people joined us and we completely ran out of old glass bottles and milk cartons while we were upcycling candle holders, wallets and T-shirts.

Later in the evening two torch parades marched to Hågelby Gård for a big Earth Hour festival with live bands and eco friendly food and beverages.

Catch you later! Sandra and Gayathri
