Green Festivals are a new concept to me that I learned about form the book I had to read for tour book review assignment. They’re really neat and I would love to try to make it to one! Green Festivals is America’s longest-running sustainability and green living event. Basically, they gather hundreds of vendors who all are actively running their businesses with eco-friendly, sustainable business strategies and techniques and those businesses set up tables and sell their items to all the visitors. Every year the festival is located in 5 cities: New York City, Washignton DC, Los Angeles, Portland. They used to hold it in Chicago too, but it’s not on their website so it looks like it may not be happening there this year. (Which is sad, because it seems like an awesome event!) Regardless, its a great event it seems and has grown alot.
This wonderful organization is helping our economy take step in the right direction toward sustainability! For more information, visit greenfestivals.org
