Grub Garden Goes Green!
Who says the grass can’t be greener on the other side? Being leaders in the community means also taking responsibility in our treatment of our city and our neighbors. We are excited to announce that beginning this month the Miami Flea grub garden is going green.
As part of this initiative, our food vendors are committing not to use styrofoam or straws unless they are compostable. With over 15 vendors this will reduce the waste at one of the A+E District’s most significant events. There will be recycling bins on site that will alleviate the waste and indicate how to make use of green containers and straws. You can also reduce your carbon footprint by riding your bike or taking the public transit.Here are some tips on how to shop consciously at The Miami Flea:
-Bring a reusable bag to take home your goods.
-Pack a reusable water bottle versus plastic.
-Shop recycled or repurposed items.
-Bring reusable utensils.
-Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
-Support green businesses.
-Shop for eco-friendly beauty products.
-Consider eco-friendly fashion lines and eco-friendly home decor.
-Opt for a text receipt versus paper.
-Consider carpooling to The Miami Flea.
-Pay for street parking with an app versus printing a parking ticket.
The Arts + Entertainment District is accessible via the MetroMover “School Board Station” on NE 15th Street or by the City of Miami’s FREE trolley system. The trolley runs from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. six days a week with connecting routes to Miami Beach, Downtown/Brickell, Coral Gables, Wywnood, Little Havana, and The Design District.
Part of this change is to create a responsible and earth-friendly environment for all of us to enjoy in our city. Bring your vibes, family, and friends, and we’ll see you all this Sunday, January 18 from 1-5 p.m.
