I have mentioned in a past blog about Elmhurst's dedication to being a green community. Elmhurst’s beautiful exterior, along with its resident’s strong ideals, begs for it to be a leader in the green movement. This upcoming Saturday July 31st, Elmhurst, IL is ready to really show its green side for the third annual Elmhurst Green Fest!

The town of Elmhurst has made one valiant effort to help you reduce your impact on the environment and contribute to a more sustainable community.

With fun, educational activities, this would be the perfect opportunity to get the kids excited about the environment – and possibly even motivate yourself to be more environmentally sound. There will be eco-friendly product and service exhibits to explore, a recycling drop-off and various presentations and speakers.

The Recycling Boutique is your chance to get rid of un-needed junk in your home, and put it to better use. Floppy discs, bicycles, VCRs, crayons, books, old cell phones - things you would never imagine to be "recyclable material" are in high demand at this event. 

Project Green is Elmhurst's program to help residents understand energy usage in the community. They are holding a variety of presentations and activities such as reducing home energy usage, composting tips, kid’s art with recycled materials, Tai Chi, and much more. This organization really has thought of everything!

So this July 31st, take friends, take family, or just take yourself to Wilder Park. Stroll through the exhibits and presentations to a background of live folk music and enter to win door prizes and giveaways. And don't forget to bring all of your recyclables!

The time and energy that the Elmhurst community has put into this festival is astounding. It is a well-thought-out event that is a resource of information and an inspiration to the community. At the same time, it is not surprising at all. We wouldn't expect anything less from the community-involved residents of Elmhurst. If this sounds like you're kind of town, give us a call. We would love to show off our green community.
