CoolMom is holding a Holiday Swap and Sale on November 13 in two neighborhood locations – West Seattle and Wallingford.
Shopping locally, purchasing non-packaged toys and reusing toys and baby gear truly fit the formula for reducing our carbon footprint. This is especially important at the end of the year because statistics show that during the holiday season, on average, US citizens produce 25 percent more trash compared to the rest of the year and the amount of energy used, on average, rises about 5 percent during the holiday season, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Help CoolMom make an outstanding statement for treading lightly on the planet this holiday season!
- West Seattle – 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Fauntleroy Church, 9140 California Ave. SW, corner of Barton and California. Donations and proceeds will benefit CoolMom & WestSide Baby.
- Wallingford-9:30 am to 1:30 pm at Wallingford Boys and Girls Club, 1310 N 45th St. Donations and proceeds will benefit CoolMom & FamilyWorks.
Shop for cool inexpensive toys and feel good about your holiday shopping!
During the sale learn some cool ways to reduce your waste during the holiday season, including how to create wrapping paper out of reusable and recycled materials.
