Helping Your Home Go Green

News | 13th Apr 2010

DSC_5306 Looking for answers to making your home more eco-friendly? Visit the annual EarthFair, held in Balboa Park, this weekend. Held on April 18th, from 10am-5pm, EarthFair will give you some great ideas.

A special eHome exhibit will showcase products and technology to make your home more environmentally sustainable. If you’re considering building a new structure, or an addition, alternative home-building technologies, such as straw bale and steel-frame construction, may interest you. You can also research energy and resource saving products and materials, like energy-efficient appliances and low-E windows. A wide variety of solar electric systems – available now, to help you get off the grid – will be shown, as well.

Along with the home tips, EarthFair, the largest free annual environmental fair, with over 70,000 visitors, 400 volunteers, and more than 350 exhibitors, celebrates with themed exhibits featuring food, children’s activities, music, a children‘s parade, art made from recycled materials, and the Cleaner Car Concourse. Children can learn to make paper, find out about recycling, make gift cards from recycled materials, and learn how to visit wild areas without disturbing the environment.

The exhibits represent traditional conservation organizations, wildlife preservation groups, natural and organically grown products, organic gardening, alternative energy vehicles, ecotourism opportunities, health care products and services, pet adoption services, clean air and clean water products, and rainforest preservation groups. It’s a learning experience for everyone!
