6th Annual Greenfest Philly
Saturday, September 10, 2011
Headhouse Square
Philadelphia, PA

Greenfest Philly educates the public about steps they can take to be more sustainable in their daily lives. The festival showcases 100s of exhibitors, providing a wealth of information and useful green products. By providing these educational opportunities and resources, Greenfest Philly wishes to impart that being green is something we can all do.

Greenfest Philly has been held the first weekend after Labor Day for the past 5 years. Urban Green Partnership, which created and grew Greenfest Philly, has passed the torch on to Clean Air Council to organize this exciting festival. This year we will be holding the event at historic Head House Square along 2nd St. between South St. and Pine St.

We hope you will join the Council on Saturday September 10th from 11am-5pm for music, food, fun and more!

—-Greenfest Philly is also looking for sponsors and exhibitors! If you are interested, please contact Martin Hage (mhage AT cleanair.org) at Clean Air Council.

Mid-Atlantic Goods Movement Conference

Goods Movement Conference Logo
The Mid-Atlantic region is long overdue for a conference that brings together various stakeholders to discuss the impact of goods movement on public health. Conference topics include goods movement industry trends in the Northeast, impacts on nearby communities, and collaboration to develop cost-effective solutions to reduce air pollution from goods movement. Bringing together health professionals and policy makers will allow these leaders to work together to develop and implement region-specific policies and solutions.
