The first Green Fair was deemed a success by organizers. More than 1,500 visitors and 75 exhibitors attended the fair.
“The Green Fair’s attendance was remarkable,” said Amye King, Director of the Lake County Department of Growth Management. “I think the community as a whole was eager and wanted to learn more about how they can be environmentally friendly. The Green Fair gives local businesses, organizations and governmental entities the opportunity to share some of these sustainable-living ideas with the community in a fun, fair-like atmosphere.”
In addition to environmental information shared at the event, the Green Fair provided an opportunity for the community to properly and safely dispose of household hazardous chemicals, recyclables and old thermometers and thermostats containing mercury.
