Free Geek Accepting E-Waste at EcoFair Toronto
Free Geek Toronto is a technology reuse not-for-profit organization that uses unwanted electronics/computers to increase access to technology, offer employment and training opportunities, and reduce the environmental impact of technology.
Collection of Unwanted Tech! Bring all the computer-related items that are sitting around your place collecting dust and let’s see if we can get reuse out of it.
Anarres Natural Health Apothecary
ALL AGES! Spa Gifts: Make Salts, Scrubs and Face & Body Masks
Why spend ten times more on stuff made with mystery ingredients and laced with industrial chemicals that contaminate water and persist in our ecosystems? You’ll learn what each natural wholesome ingredient does according to tradition and contemporary knowledge, and how to combine them to meet individual needs. You’ll check out clays, minerals, salts, oils and essential oils and go home with a custom face mask, or a body scrub or a bath salt!
Join Members of TEECC to Play SOLUTIONS
A game of Hope and Action for the Climate
It’s a race against time to fight climate change. You will work together to reduce global emissions before it’s too late! As you strategically deploy various climate solutions, you will be tested on your knowledge and your ability to prioritize. You will need to think critically about each solution and discuss with your teammates in order to avoid catastrophe.
From time to time TEECC invites guests to share what they are up to at their meetings. They had the pleasure to play “Solutions – The Game” with the game’s inventor. It was lots of fun. Lots of laughter. Lots of, “I didn’t know that.” The game is non-competitive. The version that will be played at the EcoFair is very casual – visitors can join for as long or as short as they like.

NOTE: TEECC is not selling the game at the fair, just playing it.
