Another Great Green Fest

Starting tomorrow, I’ll get back to the normal sustainablog routine of more substantive content on news and developments in the world of sustainability. But after a long weekend of Green Fest-ing, it’s definitely in the forefront of my mind. We had a great time, met many wonderful people, and learned much from spending time with other exhibitors.

    What I appreciated most about the Fest, was the ability to connect with some old friends, and go home with some insights into the green consumerism bit . . .
