Berkshire Earth Expo @ Boys and Girls Club
Apr 6 @ 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Berkshire Earth Expo is a community fair focused on energy efficiency, climate resilience, and the protection of nature and our health.  Join us to learn, take action to reduce your energy use, and to save money. This unique event features student exhibits, eco-friendly vendors and organizations, food, games and fun for the kids, arts and crafts, WordxWord, and much more.

The Cooler Communities Challenge makes it easy and convenient for you to take steps to reduce your carbon footprint. By accessing the resources and presentations at the expo, you can choose to make pledges and adopt new habits depending on what makes sense for you. These actions will not only be good for the earth but will save you money as well. The pledges of all attendants will be added up to determine the collective reduction of our community’s carbon footprint.

 I will also attach a flyer and a few photos.
