GreenFest Philly & Bike Philly This Weekend!

GreenFest Philly 2010

GreenFest Philly returns to 2nd & South Street/Headhouse Square District for a fashion-themed event this Sunday, Sept. 12 at 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The annual green festival will feature:

  • More than 200 exhibitors
  • Vegetarian food
  • Live music and entertainment
  • Kids activities
  • Eco-poetry contest
  • Eco-exchange fashion show and clothing swap

Highlighting everything from sewing buttons to buying second hand to purchasing a sustainable wardrobe, this year’s theme is fashion. Featuring a fashion show and clothing swap, GreenFest Philly will emphasize the importance of supporting local thrift stores, buying organic fabrics, and recycling your closet. Find out how easy it is to remove that nasty stain without using harsh chemicals and how to turn a torn T-shirt into a fabulous scarf.
