GreenFest Philly 2008

Share this on:

philadelphiaIt’s that time of year again…time for the Philadelphia area’s largest environmental event, GreenFest Philly! And it’s free to the public! Enjoy live music, eco films, local and organic foods, kids activities, a fashion show, an organic pastry contest, and peruse over 200 exhibitors’ green goods and services.

This years theme is all about water…water quality, conservation and consumption. Interesting tidbit: “it takes 5 liters of water to produce a 1 liter disposable plastic bottle of water.” Learn about rain barrels, grey water systems, and water-conserving appliances, as well as composting and recycling, green living and building, sneaker recycling, and yoga.

Bicyclists will be accommodated with a bike valet service and those who bring refillable water bottles can fill up at the free, no-waste drinking water stations set up throughout the event.

GreenFest Philly takes place at 2nd & South Streets on Sunday, September 7th, from
11am to 6pm.
