Add some Magic to your Friday this week!

In partnership with one of our #EWFamous businesses, Querk Group, we are excited to announce that this Friday, July 18th, Earthwise in Seattle is co-hosting a collaborative design and upcycling event to celebrate the launch of the Magic Room in the Pioneer Building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square!

The Happy(ish) Hour Event begins with the official launch of the Magic Room. Designed by owner John Lever, here you’ll find “an intimate meeting space for businesses within the historical Pioneer Square district. This small conference room is chocked full of Earthwise goodness. From the massive wood-planked, light bulb chandelier to the industrial glass globes serving as ivy planters, The Magic Room shows your typically sterile work place a thing or two about reinventing office design using ‘upcycled’ materials.”

Following the Magic Room visit, the party will continue as we all head to Earthwise for an after hours, “out-of-bounds” tour of the Seattle location and a demonstration of how to use salvaged materials while we enjoy more nibbles and bites. The evening will also include the give-away of 4-$50 gift certificates for salvaged goods from Earthwise as well as a  10% discount to all those in attendance to be spent this evening ONLY!

RSVP Here!

Event Details:

Where: Meet at the Magic Room, located at 600 1st Ave Seattle, WA 98104

What: Tours of the Magic Room and Earthwise-Seattle, and nibbles and bites at both venues.

When: Friday, July 18th, 2014.

We can’t wait to see you! For more information about the event, including parking, please visit the event sign-up page or call the Seattle location at 206-624-4510.

 

 

EWSalvage First Tacoma Workshop

 
We are pleased to have successfully launched our first #EWSalvage Workshop here in Tacoma. Over 18 die hard #EWSalvage friends braved the chilly wind and rain to gather around the old sequoia, learning the benefits of Lead Out Paint Remover. One of our guests even got down & dirty with helping scrape old paint off of various surfaces we had applied the Lead Out to. Loved how safe it felt to spread this soy-based product to our wooden rosettes, tiles, doors and wood window frames, knowing that it now rendered the lead-based paint which had previously covered these pieces, non-toxic and hazard free.

Each participant received a complimentary goody bag jam-packed with handy Earthwise information and a fun mini red measuring tape along with enjoying a light mid morning snack of croissants, fruit, cheese and beverages. We closed our workshop with a drawing for a copy of Joanne Palmisano’s book ‘ Salvage Secrets Design & Decor ‘ which lucky lady, Bronwyn, is now the proud owner of! Congratulations to you, Bronwyn!

It was great to see so many of our attendees stay after the workshop to enjoy the 15% discount they received just for taking part! Being able to spend some time with a few people from our creative Earthwise community, sharing tips, tricks, food, and a few laughs really re-energized us and left us eagerly anticipating our next gathering! Looking forward to an ever growing future full of Salvage fun, stay tuned for more details. Until next time…SALVAGE ON!!

Waste Makes Good Taste

Good tasting vegetables, that is!

 

If you haven’t heard of TAGRO, here is a little history. Short for “Tacoma Gro”, TAGRO premium mix soil is made by the city of Tacoma from a blend of waste water byproducts, called biosolids, and other weed­-free gardening components. Consumers in the greater Tacoma area have been using this environmentally friendly product in landscaping and vegetable gardens since 1991. The best thing about the mix is it’s FREE!

Now if you need something to plant in we have 2” x 6” material at .50 cents a linear foot to build raised beds. Earthwise always has a myriad of things like pots, boxes, jars, buckets and sinks to add soil and a green growing plant to. We even use orphaned toilet tanks and retired barbeques as vessels for growing. There is always something to reuse in the garden here.

For more information on getting some TAGRO for your garden ­ go to www.tagro.com or call (253)­ 502­-2150. Photos and article by Karen Carston, Earthwise Tacoma.
