2020 Green Gifts Fair Cancelled - Virtual Options a Possibility

Do It Green! Minnesota's 2020 Green Gifts Fair has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty around planning future events. We are very sad to have to make this decision and are working to plan ways in which our sustainable vendors, educators and attendees are able to connect with each other virtually.

If you are a vendor, past volunteer or attendee, please take two minutes to complete this survey and give us your thoughts on virtual options such as a directory, social media vendor stories and/or a "green holiday shop day" to promote green living and green holidays this year.

Stay connected! We continue to promote green living ideas, resources and tools on our social media.

Volunteer at the Event

Do It Green! Minnesota is seeking volunteers to help us make the 2019 Green Gifts Fair a success! The Green Gifts Fair, held Saturday, November 23rd at the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis, is a fun and eco-friendly way to start the holidays, with more than 80 vendors, live music, green living demos, a family area, and more! Our theme this year is #MyGreenCommunity — inspiring and supporting our local and global communities.

The Green Gifts Fair wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of all our volunteers! All volunteers will receive a Do It Green! Minnesota recycled t-shirt and an appreciation gift. A list of available roles and times can be found below. Do you know someone who might like to volunteer? Please pass along this posting and encourage them to sign up!

If you would like to volunteer or have questions about volunteering, please contact Crystal Erickson at crystal@doitgreen.org with your interest and availability.
