Chicago 2010

Navy Pier | May 22nd - 23rd, 2010

Alisa Gravitz

There's no better place to celebrate Spring thaw than the Chicago Green Festival.

It's two days filled with the best in green, where over 125 visionary leaders and great how-to workshops show us how to live greener lives. There are always fun activities for kids, organic beer and wine, delicious vegetarian cuisine and a marketplace of more than 300 eco-friendly exhibitors.

At the Green Festival you hear positive, practical solutions to the issues that affect you most - toxin-free homes, transportation, green energy, green building, local healthy foods and fair trade.

We extend our thanks to the City of Chicago and the Chicago Department of Environment for their continued support to in bringing Green Festival to the Midwest.

Quotes:

"We’ve exhibited at all the Green Festivals for over 7 years because they are consistently the best consumer festival to reach conscious and sustainably-minded consumers who are seeking out companies that support their lifestyles"

"“Volunteering on the Green Team is a tangible way to participate in saving the planet. You really know that you’re making a difference when you see all the waste that won’t be going to a landfill."

- GF Volunteer Barbara Sanders


"It has been both beneficial to our business and the entire sustainability movement to be aligned with the dedicated GreenFestivals Crew."

- Mitchell Slade, Eco-struction
