Brighten up your winter — Sustainability Trust's Winter Market is back!
The Make a Difference Market is on Saturday June 30, 10am - 2pm at Sustainability Trust’s EcoCentre on Forresters Lane. This unique market will inspire locals who like to make a difference with the power of their spending.
More than 20 local, ethical and eco-friendly businesses will help people get set for winter, plastic-free July and Fairtrade Fortnight. Like Sustainability Trust, many stall holders invest profits in community programmes, or have a Fairtrade, ethical, natural, recycled or reusable twist.
We’re hosting this market because we want Wellingtonians to celebrate all the good things in life, like delicious food, cheerful company and a cosy space to go home to.
We’ll have a wide range of wonderful stalls, as well as Fairtrade coffee and warm, tasty food from Dukes of Sandwich. There will also be an electric car there for people to try out. We’re not selling them, we just want people to feel the greener vroom!
Sustainability Trust will also be on site to answer questions about insulation, heating and draught-proofing, and with DIY home energy products for fast home fixes. There will be lots at our market to help people get more out of their homes, for less. From handmade door-snakes to home heating, re-usable lunch wraps to keep cups, we’ve got a wide range of products and info to help make winter warm and sustainable.
Stallholders will include:

Last financial year, we provided the highest number of free, lined curtains ever to families with Community Services Cards. To be exact, we gave 2462 sets of curtains to 604 households! But we want to give out even more this year before our Wellington Curtain Bank closes on 30 November.
