Looking for something to do this weekend? Go for the green at this year’s Chicago Green Festival at Navy Pier. The fest features fun and inspiring demos and workshops as well as more than 300 eco-friendly exhibitors, which includes Deals Magazine! We’ll be on hand to spread the word about our unique approach to deals and our support of local businesses.
“We want to show people that we’re a greener alternative to the typical deals website,” said Promotions Manager Zach Bambacht. We’ll also be handing out some awesome seed cards:
These biodegradable cards have wildflower seeds pressed into them. All you have to do is plant the card in some soil, and before you know it, little seedlings will start to sprout. Plant the entire card, or rip it into smaller pieces to plant in several pots. You’ll have a green thumb before you know it!
The Green Festival also features an eco-friendly fashion show, a bike tour, activities for kids and hundreds of talks on topics like fair trade, organic food and recycling. Check out the event guide for more info, and be sure to stop by and say hi! We’ll be at booth 1420, right by the main stage.
See you there!
