WGL Energy Greening the DC Green Festival

WGL Energy will retire 242 Green-e® Climate certified Carbon Offsets to counterbalance the emissions resulting from the event including natural gas usage, hotel stays, ground transportation, as well as food and waste. Electricity usage was not included since the DC convention center uses wind power. The environmental benefit is equivalent to: Taking 51 cars off the road for one year, or avoiding the consumption of 27,231 gallons of gasoline, or planting 6,205 tree seedlings that grow for 10 years! Thanks WGL Engery!

Gartika at the DC Green Festival May 6-8th

Gartika means 'a weaver's workshop' in Sanskrit. If you like the idea of handprinted kimonos, cashmere scarves, nomadic bags made out of embroidered fabric, silk and cotton kaftans created out of elegant scarves, and stunning semi-precious silver jewelry, then don't miss the opportunity to see the 2016 collection. Gartika is fun, unique and eclectic. It also supports the African Wildlife Foundation. Find them in Booth #357A Read about chemicals through fashion here
