“This past weekend I attended Seattle’s 10th Annual Green Festival where hundreds of vendors and exhibitors enthusiastically shared their green stories. One vendor that stood out for me was Eco Tapi, developers of compostable and biodegradable paper and plastic products made out of tapioca! Not only was the product interesting, but they also had a beautiful way of merchandising such utilitarian wares. Their parent company, Green Tokyo, makes a variety of interesting eco-products.”

“It was great to see Chicago go green post St. Patrick’s Day, with the annual Green Festival.
Du-Jay again enjoyed people power bike ride with Working Bikes. It’s fun to see the pedaling create enough energy to make a little bike go around the world, spout water from a mermaid rain barrel or play a record! We also saw our old favorites, Coco Loco, who will also be at Summer Camp Music Festival again. I wear 2 pairs of their earrings pretty much 24/7 and Sagezilla also has a spiral pair she often wears when not actively doing gymnastics. We also saw the booth that makes old banners into super cool wallets and bags, like my favorite one that resembles the Chicago flag….and a certain blog header.”
