Christmas Décor Swap

December 3, 2023, 12:00 pm

Environmental Education Centre

If you're looking to update your holiday decorations or find a little gift for someone, join us at our Christmas Décor Swap where you can incorporate some of the 3R's for a more eco-friendly holiday! 

  • REDUCE...the amount of new materials being purchased, and the amount of money you spend this year!
  • REUSE...great decorations so they don't end up in the landfill or take up room in your home! 

Staff will be there to demonstrate how to make this holiday season eco-friendly and wallet friendly.


    How does it work?

    12 p.m. to 2 p.m.: Environment & Sustainability staff will be accepting donated items at the Environmental Education Centre. Staff will go through your items with you to decide if they can be kept for the swap. Please bring in gently-used, clean and operable decorations only.

    2 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Drop in anytime to find something new for the season! 

    Don't have anything to swap? Come and get some great holiday décor for free! We will also be accepting donations for the Food Bank.

    All décor left over after the swap will be repurposed or donated.

      • Christmas trees,
