There's no shortage of green metaphors in Humboldt County. There's the easy go-to of our "green economy," our pride in the greenery of our gigantic redwoods forests and then there's our commitment to promoting an eco-friendly, green lifestyle. Get started on that last one this weekend.
The Sustainable Living Expo (free) is Plan it Green's contribution to boosting Humboldt's eco-friendly reputation. From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, the Arcata Community Center will be bursting with all things sustainable. This year's theme is "Building Green Communities and Wheels of Change," so many of the demonstrations and workshops will be geared toward environmentally friendly construction and vehicles. The expo highlights local, green businesses, showcases the newest in electric vehicle technology, and shows you how to reduce your personal environmental impact. Don't miss the special reception with Humboldt Made at 4 p.m. (snacks, people).
Whether you love the planet or you just love expos, it's not a bad way to spend a Saturday. We live in a beautiful place, folks; let's learn how to keep it that way.
