“Green Is Universal” (Tuesday Morning Entry)

Not that we watch much TV or anything, but NBC’s week long green programming effort (November 4-10) is topped off with a FREE eco fair at Universal City and guess what? PTF will be exhibiting at the Eco Fair

November 10, 2007 from 10am to 4pm for a free Eco-Fair (does not include park admission). The fair will be outside the park {Universal Studios} by the front gates & globe. The Eco-Fair is suitable for the entire family and will be presented by a “Green Team” of experts from over 20 organizations and the Environmental Media Association. Activities and displays—many of them with “hands-on” interactive features– will range from simulated tidepools to Segway Personal Transporters, solar-powered blenders and eco-friendly popcorn poppers [ Sports Utility Bikes, Sun Ovens, Bike Blender]. Participating organizations will include Heal the Bay, Southern California Edison, Hollywood Beautification Team, Arbonne International, Global Green USA, LADWP, Baldwin Hills Conservancy, Tree People, Window On Our Waters, Los Angeles Conservations Corps, Path to Freedom. The Metro will test guests’ Green knowledge in the “Go Green, Go Metro” trivia game awarding exciting prizes and persons arriving via Metro can exchange their ticket stub for a free recycled carry-all bag,

Join the homegrown revolutionary urban homesteaders of Path to Freedom at NBC’s Eco Fair. We and few eco volunteers be tabling and bringing along some of our favorite sustainable goods here from the urban homestead like: Sun Ovens, Bike Blender, Xtracycle, Toilet Lid Sink, Urban Chickens and more. Bring friends, family — hope to see you there!

What a surprise, like TreeHugger said “never saw this one coming.” Too bad, but it’s time to mark another company off the list of products. When we urban homesteaders can’t make our own, we sometimes rely on Tom and Burt.
Seeds of Change, Tom now Burt …. oh well.
