The Recycling Factory has plenty of programmes, so reserving enough time for your visit is essential. Firstly, a number of recycling themed Do-it-yourself workshops engage you in creative activities. OutsaPop will be there with my own trashion workshop with army surplus shop Varusteleka, showing you how to turn used army gear into fashion!

In addition, more than 50 Finnish pioneering companies of the eco-design field sell their products. The sales items include clothes, interior decorations and jewellery made of recycled materials, as well as organic products. These products will be also presented in the form of fashion shows and small work demonstrations. Furthermore, this year we include the topics of energy, beauty and nutrition. You can also get your bike fixed into shape after the winter and learn more about how to live greener. Popular “Free of Charge Market” (Ilmaistori) operates on the principle of “bring & take”: you can bring undamaged and clean clothes, toys, books and other household goods and take with you anything you need throughout the weekend.
