The Green Festival in Seattle

If you're in Seattle today, don't miss the Green Festival there. Seattle became this year the fourth city in the festival circuit and today is the second (and last) day of the event.

Green Festival, a joint project of Global Exchange and Co-op America, is the largest green living event in the U.S. What I like about the festival is that it is also a great opportunity to see and explore so much of the green world, which is concentrated like a green capsule for two days under one roof.

According to its press release, Seattle’s Green Festival is expecting attendance of 30,000 visitors and will 300 local and national green businesses, and dozens of community and non-profit groups. There will be also a local focus to this festival, which was designed with the help of The Seattle Host Committee of nearly 200 community leaders.

The Green Festival is not only a great place to explore the green market, but also to learn. There are many great speakers, such as Summer Rayne Oakes ('Green Gone Wild' at room 3, 1:00 p.m.), Cecile Andrews ('The Slow Life Movement: Living Happier with a Smaller Footprint', room 1, 3:00 p.m.), Richard Heinberg ('Peak Everything: Treating Our Collective Hydrocarbon Addiction', room 1, 4:00 p.m) and many others.

So, here are the details:
Hours: 11AM - 6PM

Address: Washington State Convention & Trade Center 800 Convention Place Seattle, WA

Price: $15 (see more info on pricing at

So go and enjoy the festival, and don't forget to check the booth of our friends at Kedzie Press,which are actually based in Seattle.
