The Plant Exchange is a community organization that encourages resource sharing, reuse and recycling. Our annual free Plant Exchange event brings over 1000 community members together, and throughout the year, we host several events that support Oakland’s designation as one of the greenest cities in the country.
Come shop for a cause! The Plant Exchange is hosting a Green Elephant Sale at our SPECIAL location in downtown Oakland this coming Saturday 10/20 from 9am-4pm and Sun 10/12 from 10am-2pm. The two day sale will be full of goodies from home decor, specialty kitchen items, furniture, and more. Proceeds benefit The Plant Exchange!
