The Mirella Project, which is dedicated to building community through saving the environment, has lots of events planned throughout this month and into December.
Those events include:
• The Effects Of Consumerism: Nov. 21, 7-8 p.m.
An info night will be held about the effects of consumerism on the environment, but will also provide action steps so you personally can reduce your eco-footprint.
• Protect our Natural Habitat: Nov. 28, 7-8 p.m.
The Mirella Project will host a habitat-focused presentation that will talk about the local environment and the steps you can take to help preserve it.
• Gifts Gone Green: Dec. 6, 6-9 p.m.
A fun evening where you can either swap or donate to get gifts for Christmas. There will be items such as mugs, books and more that would make good Christmas gifts, plus treats and other cool Christmas-themed ideas.
• Make Your Bag Night: Dec. 12, 7-8:30 p.m.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to make your own bag, Dec. 12 is your night. Come and discover how to make your own grocery bag out of a T-shirt.
• Alternative Wrapping Paper Night: Dec. 19, 7-8:30 p.m.
Buying wrapping paper might seem like the easiest option when it comes to gifts, but many everyday items in your home can be reused, repurposed and recycled after being used for wrapping.
All events are hosted at GreenSpace Building at First United Church, 450 Okanagan Ave. SE, Salmon Arm.
