  • Sign up for paperless billing.
  • Visit booths set up by local environmentally responsible organizations to learn about green initiatives.

  1. Why Wednesday? By having it on a Wednesday you are assured folks who work during the week will not be able to attend. How about a Saturday?

    1. Apologies, I didn’t see it. We try to coordinate the Green Fair with Earth Day, during that week. We have the event during a weekday so we can assure to have it properly staffed. It takes a lot of employees to run the event, cook the food, etc., and some of those teams don’t work on the weekend. Also, many of those who participate also prefer a weekday.

  2. Will the shred it be there the entire time. I have 4 boxes of stuff and been trying to get it to a free shred it day but keep missing them because of other commitments. I so want to get rid of this paper stuff.

  3. Some friendly suggestions for future Earth Day events:
    – Consider more eco-friendly food options. Hot dogs and burgers have a large carbon footprint compared to other options, and snack sized chips have packaging that is difficult (but not impossible- check out terracycle) to recycle.
    – No one (except me) recycled their empty soda cans. Placing recycling bins and maybe a representative or signage would be a great way to educate/remind people about recycling.
    – Consider partnering with local composting businesses to demonstrate and educate people about the impact of food waste.
    – In addition to electronic waste, consider adding other ‘hard to recycle’ items to this special day.

    Just some thoughts… I really did enjoy the event. Hope to see you next year!
