(April 2008) — With its focus on sustainability, Seattle is a natural place to host the nation’s largest “green” consumer show, the Green Festival, a joint project of Global Exchange and Co-op America. This green living event has been to three other U.S. cities — Washington D.C., San Francisco and Chicago — but this will be the festival’s first time in Seattle.
The Seattle Green Festival will feature more than 350 exhibits covering all aspects of sustainable “green” living. There will be booths on natural home and health products, solar panels, fairly traded gifts and crafts, organic food, green education, social investing, independent media, energy conservation, green power and climate action. The Green Festival also will feature more than 125 notable speakers.
PCC Natural Markets is honored to be the exclusive grocery sponsor of Seattle’s first Green Festival. We’ll have a strong presence with our PCC Cooks and Kid Picks programs, and Goldie Caughlan, PCC’s nutrition education manager, will offer a presentation on Sunday, April 13, starting at 12 p.m. The PCC Farmland Trust staff also will be on hand with an informational table.
