Green Street Fair


The Third Annual Green Street Fair returned to the streets of Downtown Plymouth, Michigan on April 30, May 1, and May 2, 2010. Lynne and I took the boys there, on the way to their Saturday's soccer game in Birmingham - we had a nice time.


The event helps educate and inform people of all ages about the benefits of green, organic, and eco-friendly products and services. To promote global interest and personal well-being, the Green Street Fair blends companies, artisans, entertainers, workshops and speakers together in a friendly and family-oriented outdoor environment.

"Giving Chips Bag a Second Life" - unused and obsoleted Frito-Lay packaging is transformed into stylish, limited collection handbags and other accessories, like chip bowl. Also, their recently-released compostable chip bag for the multigrain SunChips brand.

Consumers who attend the Green Street Fair are encouraged to learn the advantages of taking strides, large or small, towards living a healthier and greener life. I think it has pretty good turn out! The weather was beautiful while we were there, nice and sunny. Though, I can't wait for East Lansing's very own Green event, soon to come during the upcoming 2010 Great Lakes Folk Festival: Grassroots Green! Stay tuned :)
