From our friends at WABI Burien:

There’s a special meetup spot and walking route for WABI Burien’s next Walk-n-Talk this Sunday, Feb. 3 – We’ll meet at the Recology Store Highline for a tour and introduction to the great things they’re doing and the “green” eco products they offer.

You’ll find things for home, office and personal use, for adults and kids alike: a thoughtful selection of eco and up-cycled products, containers, natural cleansers, bags and bottles, among other things.

The Recology Store offers recycling/disposal options. This would be a great time to drop off old fluorescent tubes, styrofoam packaging, batteries*, textiles… If you plan to bring in special disposal items, please arrive early to check the items in. *Batteries must have their positive ends taped to avoid contact with other batteries.
