Students For A Sustainable Future

CELF-EXPO_10-sm We know it’s not easy being green. But green is a must, the new black, de rigeur, where it’s at. It’s fashionable, but it also makes sense for the future. Not green yet? Want to gain more eco-sense, and sustainability savvy? CELF (Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation) based in Chappaqua will lend you a hand getting to green. The 5th Annual Students for a Sustainable Future EXPO will be held at PACE University’s Goldstein Gym and Fitness Center April 20th from 6-9 pm. It’s a can’t miss for all environmentalists, wannabegreenies and those who are just “looking.”
With more than 60 interactive and diverse exhibits, the EXPO showcases sustainable development through innovative products, programs and practices, and introduces the people, companies and organizations shaping the future of sustainable enterprise. Come learn how to green up your cleaning products, your garden, your home or business renovation. Explore interactive exhibits showcasing alternative energy, green gadgets, and fabulous fair trade fashion from Africa and elsewhere. Bring your middle and high school sons and daughters to visit with other students from around the Hudson Valley region displaying exhibits highlighting sustainability.
Returning to the EXPO this year, the recording industry’s Warner Music Group will feature that company’s efforts toward green tours, and will continue to showcase their artists’ work to promote sustainability. And as a special treat, Brooklyn band of brothers The So So Glos will perform at 8:30 pm. This eco-conscious group’s latest CD uses packaging produced with wind power, made with 100 percent post consumer paper, water based printing and corn plastic. You could eat it, but we recommend instead our delicious complimentary organic offerings from event co-sponsors Whole Foods Market and Honest Tea.
Register online for the EXPO at $15 for adults and free for students. ( ) Tickets also available at the door. Enjoy some great green food, green products, and yes, green music. Green clothing optional.
