It’s that time again: the famous Earthwise Earth Day Sale & BBQ season is here! Why is this sale famous? Well, it has always been our biggest sale of the year & we have people who wait all year long just for this one event! And, after last year’s month-long, anniversary salvage sale-abration, we’ve been really working hard trying to figure out how to top that to keep the excitement going!

#EWEarthDay2015 Sale starts 4/22!

 

So, this year, we’re being taken over with all sorts of ways to get more salvage while spending less, enjoying free food while feelin’ the reclaimed history, and also finding ways to support local historic preservation and reuse efforts – more details on all of this below.
