Globe_green

The San Francisco Green Festival will celebrate its 7th year November 14-16 by expanding its efforts to strengthen the local green economy. We are launching a new program, Green Week (Nov. 10-13), featuring local sustainability heroes hosting a variety of events throughout the city, including Solutions Salon, Yoga Festival, Film Festival and Solutions Tours. Attend any Green Week event and receive a voucher redeemable for a FREE one-day admission to Green Festival!

Green Festival, the nation’s largest green consumer living event will
make its seventh trip to San Francisco this year on November 14, 15,
& 16, 2008 at the San Francisco Concourse Exhibition Center and the
Giftcenter Pavilion Theater. The festival will highlight economic and
environmental sustainability issues that have been so relevant in
headlines and town halls across the nation. While the country finds
itself at a pivotal point in terms of solving significant environmental
concerns, the Green Festival program will help navigate this unusually
uncertain time by offering ideas for attainable change.

Start this holiday season right in our green marketplace with thousands of eco-friendly products and services screened for their commitment to people and the planet—everything from natural children’s toys and organic cotton clothing to Fair Trade gifts and sustainable home remodeling materials.
