Tons of Fun. No Waste.

Everything at this ultra-green party will be eaten, imbibed, recycled, reused or composted.

Join the staff and board of ecoRI News for a zero-waste fundraiser in honor of our 6th birthday at Machines with Magnets, a gallery and performance space at 400 Main St. in Pawtucket, R.I., on Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 6 to 9 p.m.

The event will feature a seasonal tasting menu prepared by Julians Catering, live music from Nate Ginnety and DJ Yglesias, silent auction and cash bar. All guests receive a free commemorative glass to use at the event and to reuse in perpetuity. People's Power & Light will be offsetting the energy used at this event with 100 percent local renewable power.

Guests are encouraged to take public transit, carpool or bike to the event. An informal group bike ride to the party will be led by East Coast Greenway Alliance and the Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition. The group will embark at 6:20 p.m. from 444 Westminster St. in Providence. The ride will follow the route of the East Coast Greenway for nearly the entire 7-mile distance. Bike parking will be available at Machines With Magnets.
