“Charles Earnest attended early Green Festivals when he lived in San Francisco. After moving home to Bellevue six years ago, the marketing professional and Microsoft contractor served as a catalyst for bringing the nation’s premier sustainability event to the Pacific Northwest.
Now in its fourth year in Seattle, the Green Festival will be held in a new location at Qwest Event Center, May 21-22. It features some 300 eco-friendly exhibitors and 125 speakers, many of whom hail from the Puget Sound region.
“Frankly, we have all sorts of sustainable events, but nothing of this scale,” said Earnest, who serves as a host committee member and volunteer. “As a promotion, however, the goal is to get new people in the door – to attract people who have never before stepped in a green event.”’

“Hopefully the weather will be nicer next weekend for the Green Festival, the nation’s largest green consumer living event. This two day eco-extravaganza features over 300 environmentally-friendly vendors, educational workshops, live music, local vegetarian cuisine, and organic wine and beer. I’m hoping to get some good ideas on how I can improve my ecological footprint and of course, I want to eat some great food!! I am definitely going to check out the organic cooking demonstrations. Corey and our friends Heather and Josh are coming too so stay tuned for pics from the event! Let me know if you are going to be there! I will be attending on Sunday.”
