What’s Up? (Upcycling, of course!)
Monday, April 1st
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market Carmel, FREE

So you’ve heard of recycling, what’s upcycling? It’s taking something that you would otherwise throw out and finding a way to make it into something that has equal or greater use/value. You can enjoy several upcycled products at Whole Foods Market Carmel such as our 55 Gallon Rain Barrels. These barrels were ‘waste’ from the food shipping industry and repurposed (by a small company in Illinois) to become rain barrels! We also have THE best price in town - $69.99 each.

The two Indiana stores are delighted to support April, May & June’s recipient: My Sister’s Place Urban Recycle. My Sister’s Place Urban Recycle is an inspiring organization offering a win-win for the local economy & the environment.
