Learn how to create sustainable living in Pittsburgh

August 4, 2012 by  

The Allegheny Green and Innovation Festival will take place at the Hartwood Acres Park from September 29 to 30. This is a free event although visitors are asked to bring items such as non-perishable goods and reusable tote bags for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, hard plastic bottle tops to be given to Green Grandma and gently-used medical items such as canes and scrubs for Global Links.

There will be a wide variety of activities to take part in at the festival including a children’s activities area, environmental demonstrations, food concessions and product vendors. Product vendors will be selling everything from crafts to environmentally friendly solar panels. In addition, several environmental organizations will be attempting to educate visitors on various topics. No doubt those organizations have been using the various services of Pittsburgh printing companies to prepare for the festival. Brochure printers in the area could provide them with brochures that can give a brief overview of what the organization stands for. Banner printing services could provide them with a colorful banner to draw people over to their information booth.

This event should allow residents of the area to not only learn something about innovative products and services but allow them to discover new artists, crafters and learn about organizations in their city that they might never have heard of. It should be a great opportunity for the family to spend a fall weekend together; there will no doubt be something that will appeal to each member of the family.
