Car Boot Sale
CASNG would like to thank everyone who helped to
recycle, reuse, repurpose, renew, and repair, at our
TOWARDS ZERO WASTE
CAR BOOT SALE
held in SEPTEMBER
CARDIFF BOWLING CLUB CAR PARK
On a wonderfully warm and sunny Sunday, there was brisk trade in goods at the second hand and hand-made goods stalls. Rotary sold a load of sausage sandwiches and the coffee van brewed some great coffee - thank you to all of those patrons who remembered to bring their own coffee cup to help reduce waste.
Stall holders sold goods in fabric bags rather than plastic bags, and only a small amount of litter was created.
Lake Mac Boomerang Bags helped to reduce plastic use, by giving away take-home-to-sew shopping bag kits - many keen locals will be attempting to make their own shopping bags from recycled fabric. A small number of fruit & veggie bags were also sold, to help reduce even further the community's reliance on plastic bags.
Mandy McDonald, local Landcare Leader and Hunter Bird Observers Club expert, conducted two tours of the Cardiff South Wetland area. A surprisingly large group of enthusiastic locals were given an informative guided tour of this little known area. At the CASNG stall there was a display of local birds and plants of the Wetland, and photos of the history of the area, including aerial photos.
More locals now know about this hidden ecological gem right in Cardiff.
Another very pleasant Sunday morning in Cardiff.
