Green Sunday Holiday Market

Event Details

Join Wisebird & Collective Impact Journey for a green holiday market this season!

“Green Sunday” aims to challenge and offer an alternative to Black Friday and mass corporate consumerism by holding space for equitable, transparent and mindful consumption. A space where every item has a story and isn’t contributing to the current climate crisis in the name of profit. Rather, the community here in Toronto will enjoy a lovely afternoon of mindful shopping and good holiday cheer in a space that is inclusive, welcoming, and thoughtfully curated.

We are encouraging Torontonians to rethink the way they shop this holiday season by showing support for companies that operate with a social and environmental purpose by selling local, upcycled, reclaimed, repurposed, all-natural, eco-conscious, package-free, and ethical goods.

In addition to the market vibe, there will be a local climate keynote, a maker space, zero-waste wrapping demos, and the event will conclude with a local artist showcase for the final two hours.

From zero waste tools, handmade items, jewelry & clothing, local yummy nibbles, and so much more, you’ll find something special for everyone on your list and feel good about it! This year, give the gift of green!

When: Sunday, December 8, 2019
Where: 720 Bathurst St. Toronto
Time: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
