The Green Festival
The Green Festival is the largest eco event in the world. In Washington DC and San Francisco in 2010, and adding Chicago, Seattle, New York, and Los Angeles to the list in 2011, this celebration of sustainability and hope for a more environmentally-friendly future continues to grow. It is the product of the joint efforts of Global Exchange, an international organization that focuses on human rights, the environment, and social and economic justice, and Green America, which is a non-profit, member-based organization that works towards the same values — sustainability and social and economic fairness.
What can you expect from attending America's largest and longest-running green fair? Green Festival hosts about one hundred different speakers at each event, including authors, environmental leaders, green business owners, artists, herbalists, and policy makers. There are inspiring films, activities for kids, music, and of course plenty of eco-friendly products from organic cotton clothing to fair trade coffee and chocolate. Tickets range from $10 for students, seniors, cyclists, and public transit riders, to $25 for a full weekend pass. This price includes 'GF bucks,' money that you can spend on products in the fair. So check out this green festival when it comes your way, make it an all day event, get inspired and have fun.
