Celebrate Earth Day with reuse!

This year, spend your Earth Day at ReuseFest! PRC’s 8th annual ReuseFest offers a one-day collection event for gently used materials like clothing, houseware, art supplies, and more to be reused by local nonprofits.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Children’s Hospital Parking Lot, located at 55th and Harrison Street in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood. Materials donated during the four-hour event will be reused in some fashion, whether resold, repurposed or given to those in need in our region and around the world.

This year’s ReuseFest is better than ever! You can also stop by to enjoy an special Earth Day celebration featuring local food trucks including Franktuary and Revival Chili, pop-up shops, educational activities, and giveaways.
