Hey, Live Green Connecticut! Eco-friendly Festival Recycled Again in Norwalk.

29 Aug

After just coming back from Seattle and Portland, we were amazed at all the amazing advances they have made in terms of keeping things green and keeping things real.  Almost everywhere you went to eat you’d see bins to recycle and bins to compost.  Yes, compost!  Also, breweries give away their used up grains to local farms for the animals.  One last amazing thing that we witnessed was awesome trash compactors set up all around the food carts.  Turns out by compacting the food (btw, the utensils and packages are also compostable), garbage trucks barely need to do any pick ups.  Pretty wild stuff.

We thought how amazing Connecticut would be if we started to change our living and make great choices for the environment.  Well, the Live Green Connecticut! festival is taking place on 9/15 (10-4 pm) and 9/16  (11-4 pm) at Taylor Farm Park in Norwalk and hopes to bring changes like the ones we’ve mentioned..and more.  Admission is free, but parking your car is $5 so just make sure you bring some dinero.  (Well, you’ll want to bring mucho more dinero for all the great food and shops that will be there, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.)  So, start up the Prius and carpool with all your buds and family on down so you can figure out new ways to make Connecticut greener.

Here are some of the things that will make this a great event to check out:

      We almost went last year, but we’ll definitely have to go this year. Just sounds so great, plus dogs are allowed. Doesn’t get much better. :)
