Impact Tip - Green Festival

Next weekend is the Annual Green Festival held at Navy Pier. This is a great place to take the family and learn how your community is working to be more eco-friendly and what you can do.

From the website:
Celebrating what’s working in our communities, the Chicago Green Festival™, a joint project of Global Exchange and Green America, showcases more than 350 diverse local and national green businesses. More than 150 renowned speakers appear for insightful panel discussions and presentations.

You’ll also enjoy great how-to workshops, green careers, a Fair Trade pavilion, Youth Unity Pavilion, kids’ activities, delicious organic beer, wine and cuisine, and live music.

Find out how Midwest neighbors, community nonprofits and city departments are working together to make their cities healthier places to live.

I am really going to try and make it on Sunday assuming the baby cooperates! So if you see a giant pregnant lady pushing through the crowds, come and see if it's me and say hello :)
