Hoboken Green Team Announces Green Buildings Wakling Tour & 2nd Annual Green Fair; Invites Vendors & Participants




Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, February 6th, 2013


The City of Hoboken Green Team is organizing a walking tour of Green Buildings within Hoboken for Sunday April 21, 2013 and will host the 2nd Annual Green Fair on Saturday, May 11, 2013.

The Green Team is soliciting both vendors for the Green Fair and property owners who would like to showcase their buildings to the general public for the walking tour.

The encouraged criteria for each walking tour featured property includes LEED Certification and/or certification through another recognized rating system. Properties with at least one feature that promotes large scale environmental sustainability (ie. green roof, solar panel array, etc.) will also be considered. Please contact Christopher Brown at cbrown@hobokennj.org for more information.

Green businesses or non-profits whose mission aligns with environmental sustainability are invited to participate in the Green Fair. The Green Team is also reaching out to involve the local arts community. Interested vendors can submit the online registration form at www.hobokennj.org/greenfair and contact Christopher Brown at cbrown@hobokennj.org with any questions.

The 2nd Annual Green Fair will be held from 11am to 5pm at Pier A Park along the Hoboken waterfront and will feature live music and organic food vendors. It is intended to introduce sustainable lifestyle choices to the community, raise awareness regarding environmental concerns, and demonstrate how consumers can reduce their impact on the earth by selecting sustainable, eco-friendly products and services, reducing energy consumption, conserving water and limiting their dependence on fossil fuels.
