Another year of Green Festivals across the United States is coming to a close. Following in the footsteps of New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C. , Los Angeles and San Francisco, Portland, Oregon will be the site of the year’s final Green Festival® scheduled for December 11-13 at the Oregon Convention Center. This is your last chance to attend America’s largest and longest-running sustainability and green living event until next Spring.
With more than 10,510 acres of parks, Portland is ranked by numerous sources as one of America’s Greenest Cities. That’s because Portlanders recycle 63 percent of their waste, the highest rate in the nation. Additionally, Portland has the nation’s highest and fastest-growing percentage of bicycle commuters. So, naturally, organizers are looking forward to bringing Green Festival to the Oregon Convention Center, the ﬁrst in the nation to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED-EB (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings) certiﬁcation. The venue features a “Rain Garden” that collects storm water from the facility’s roof and ﬁlters it through an attractive system of rock terraces, pools and soil, which helps to prevent environmental pollutants from reaching the adjacent Willamette River.
Wherever it has pitched its tent, Green Festival has proven to be a vibrant and dynamic marketplace where companies and organizations from all across the United States come to showcase their green products and services, and where people learn how to live healthier, more sustainable lives. It brings together the world’s most trusted companies, innovative brands, national and local businesses, pioneering thinkers, and conscious consumers in one place to promote the best in sustainability and green living.
Green Festival offers something for everyone with the widest selection of products and services to work, play and live green from food, fashion and health to energy, construction and design. People can shop and enjoy vegan, vegetarian, organic foods, hands-on demos, educational activities and inspirational speakers.
A unique and powerful platform for connecting potential customers, retailers, wholesalers and corporations all under one roof, Green Festival also provides excellent opportunities for your company to generate business-to-business and business-to-consumer sales, build awareness and strengthen relationships in the expanding green marketplace.
