Green Products, Services and Ideas
The Green Living Festival is held to provide a venue for businesses and organizations to present products, services and ideas that will help festival attendees lower their personal carbon footprint. Participants will pick up new ideas that they can take home and put into practice to lead a greener life.
Part of Streets Alive!
The Green Living Festival was held for 8 years at the Evanston Ecology Center, but then was integrated into Evanston's Streets Alive in 2015 in an attempt to reach a larger and more diverse audience. Steets Alive is a pro-walk, pro-bike, pro-place initiative of Citizens' Greener Evanston (CGE) that takes over one mile of Main Street in Evanston once a year. Attendees of Streets Alive and the Green Living Festival are able to participate in an outdoor community event with family and friends, savor a variety of delicious food offerings, and enjoy an afternoon in a space dedicated to human-powered activities and sustainable lifestyles.
This year's tagline for Streets Alive is "Share the Road", promoting safe practices for drivers, bikers, pedestrians and all others sharing roadways and public spaces for transportation.
