Spotlight: Green Area Part 1Posted: April 25, 2012
As you all know, we have been working hard to make this years 41st Annual Capitol Hill People’s Fair more green. We have partnered with Whole Foods in collaboration with Green Up Denver to create a more sustainable event. As part of our green initiative we will again be featuring local Earth-friendly non-Profits in our dediated Green Area (located in the Center of the Park in between the CHUN stage and the seal pond)! This area is dedicated to any and all things green with the intent to provide resources for fairgoers looking for ways to live a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle. The Green Area will also feature the check-in location for our Green Police (volunteer team). We hope that by keeping this ever important issue at the forefront of fairgoers experience more and more people will adopt green practices.
