Annual fair bring environmentalism to the forefront

November 3, 2013 by  

The annual Environmental Fair is taking place this November in Schaumburg, marking a presentation of the Village of Schaumburg and the Schaumburg Township District Library.

This free event is set to feature seminars, showings of the films ‘March of the Penguins’ and ‘Free Willy’, free promotional items and samples, and vendors. Information booths will be accessible from many local environmentally friendly organizations such as Habitat for Humanity ReStore and the Spring Valley Nature Center. A craft/face painting table is expected to help keep the youngsters happy also.

Seminar topics will include ‘Stepping Stones to Greening your Home’, ‘Energy Efficiency for your Home’, ‘Tips and Tricks for Green Living’, and ‘Getting a Jump on your Vegetable Garden’. No doubt these free seminars will get many people thinking about becoming more environmentally friendly in their day-to-day lives.

When participation in events such as this, many vendors, some of whom will no doubt be coming from nearby communities such as Hoffman Estates, invest in products such as signs and banners from local print companies. The purpose is to draw more attention to their booths, which can result in more visitors and more sales. Many of the organizations providing information might also purchase brochure and catalog printing services so they have literature to hand out to interested parties.

The Environmental Fair is being held at the Schaumburg Township District Library’s Rasmussen North branch on November 16 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. For more information about the day’s events, contact Melissa Jones at 847-925-3437.
