The NYC Green Festival kicks into high gear April 21-22, as thousands of people gather to explore sustainable lifestyles and green solutions. This green consumer event has existed for ten years, but is making its first New York City appearance for 2012's Earth Day weekend, with 20,000 people expected to attend.
A project of nonprofits Green America and Global Exchange, the Green Festival will host over 125 speakers, as it "begins with finding solutions to help make our lives healthier-socially, economically and environmentally. Individuals, business and community leaders come together to discuss critical issues that impact us at home and abroad. Organizations and businesses showcase programs and products that restore the planet and all that inhabit it."
According to Green Festival Director Denise Hamler, “We affectionately refer to Green Festival as the largest party with a purpose."
