Go Green Environmental Fair

This family-friendly Environmental Fair aims to show you how each small step you take can help reduce your carbon footprint at home, school and work and save money while doing so.Next Saturday, September 23, 2023 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon, join us for Go Green 2023! at Powell Community Center, 6200 Martway Street, 66202. Local businesses and nonprofits will provide information and items to help you live a more sustainable life.

More than 40 exhibitors will educate attendees on the environmental impact of their consumer actions and choices, and how making small changes can reduce household expenses

The one-of-a-kind Eco Elvis, who describes himself as a “mix between Elvis, Weird Al Yankovic and Greta Thunberg” will perform from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Eco Elvis sings parodies to “edutain” people about how to take care of themselves, each other and our home, Planet Earth.

Bring your kids – children will be in for lots of fun and educational activities. And yes, there will be face painting!

PCs for People will take old computers and electronics, focusing on laptops, desktops and monitors and recycling them at the event. There is no need to remove or wipe hard drives ahead of time as they offer certified data destruction and recycling services. Fees apply for certain items. Learn more about this service.

New this year will be a multi-generational thrift store clothing fashion show, which will go on throughout the fair. Interested in modeling for the event? Contact Terri Baugh at [email protected].
