Residents of Denver Colorado real estate have for years been ranked as fittest and healthiest in the nation. They appreciate the fabulous recreation and pristine nature along the Front Range and want the community to find ways to sustain the environment. Many are asking for green real estate in Denver and others are adapting their existing Denver CO homes to be more energy efficient.
Enter the first annual Denver Green FestivalTM scheduled for May 2-3, 2009 at the expanded Denver Convention Center. It is a joint project of Global Exchange and Green America who believe that sustainable communities lead to a thriving planet by offering positive options that make our world safer and cleaner.
The Community Action Center, A venue designed to network the initiatives of neighbors, community non-profit organizations, and departments of the City of Denver, will open up conversations and ways to make the already spectacular city a healthier place to live.
A long list of speakers, presenters, workshops, and demonstrations are scheduled to participate. There will be live local musicians and performers including garage bands, high school string quartets, a cappella groups, children’s dance troupes, and so much more. Families will enjoy fun and education activities at the Green Kids’ Zone and the Teen Unity Pavilion.
A special Green Home and Building Pavilion will be interesting for everyone including residents of small urban apartments or large country estates. This is the place to learn how to make a home environment healthier and more efficient. And the Fair Trade Pavilion will feature products from farmers and artisans. Proceeds go to ensure that producers earn living wages that enable them to take care of their families, grow their businesses, and maintain a healthy environment.
The Denver Green FestivalTM is striving to become a zero-waste event. Seven-Star, Inc., America’s green event experts, is organizing and managing the landfill diversion, product conversion, and carbon offsetting for each Green Festival. With the help of volunteers, the organization is able to divert record-breaking amounts of waste from ending up in landfills. Some of their initiatives are worth imitating: from e-waste receptacles to recycled signage and other materials to offsetting electricity, to greener modes of transportation to eliminating the use of plastic water bottles and more.
