This year’s Go Green Wilmette Environmental Fair will be held from noon to 5 p.m. at the Michigan Shores Club, 911 Michigan Avenue in Wilmette. The theme is “Sustainable Suburbs”.
Free recycling will take place during the event at Gillson Park Beach parking lot.
Stop by the Greenwise table and become part of a video we’re shooting with the theme “I Am Greenwise Because…” Tell us why you’re passionate about protecting the environment and how you lighten your footprint. Participants will be entered in a chance to win a season of Greenwise 5-Step Organic Lawn Care fertilization service.
Going Green Matters draws more than 1,000 residents, neighbors, elected officials, exhibitors and volunteers. The latest hybrid and electric cars, demonstrations, home energy exhibits, recycling and the ever popular interactive Eco-Zone make this a wonderful event for the entire family.
People interested in living more sustainably will have a chance to learn more about topics such as saving energy at home, transportation choices, green landscaping, growing your own food, organic food and farming, connecting to nature, green home design and products, and more. Find out how schools, park districts, libraries, congregations and village governments are all working together to make our communities and the world a more sustainable place to live.
