Don't miss GreenFest Philly this Sunday in Philadelphia

We love Philadelphia and we're proud members of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN). Philly plans to become the greenest city in the U.S. by 2015. In the meantime it will host this upcoming Sunday a great green event we want to recommend on - GreenFest Philly.

Sunday is expected to be a (mostly) sunny day and if you're around Philly you shouldn't miss this great event with 200+ exhibitors, a green film festival, kids activities, eco-exchange fashion show and much more! Or in the organizers' words: "Party like there IS a Tomorrow!".

Here's some more information about the GreenFest Philly from their website:

GreenFest Philly is a one-day street fair FREE to the public that takes place in Philadelphia every September. Last year, over 200 exhibitors and 25,000 people attended the area's largest environmental event. Various features included vegetarian food, sneaker recycling, live music & entertainment, kids activities, bicycle valet, yoga, local produce, green contests, composting and recycling, Eco Exchange Fashion Show & Clothing Swap, Food Symposium and Green Film Festival.

The theme of this year's event is sustainable FOOD.

Highlighting everything from ORGANIC to BUYING LOCALLY to having a vegetarian or PASTURE-RAISED AND GRASS-FED diet, this year's event will allow us to educate others on the importance of supporting our local farmers' markets as well as how to make more conscious decisions at the grocery store. Come and try some of the eco-friendly foods available and learn about the impact our food choices have on the environment. Find out how easy it is for you to grow your own food - even if you are living in a studio apartment in Center City! Come and learn the truth about food from the green leaders in the Organic Food Industry at our Food Symposium.

Where: 2nd & South Streets, Philadelphia, PA

When: Sunday, Spet. 13, 2009, 11am - 6pm


From our experience this is a great event and it's a lot fun. Green fun. e'll be there and we hope to see you too!
