Nearly 4,000 people  attended Jacksonville’s Green Expo that took place May 15-16, 2010 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. More than 100 businesses as well as health and wellness exhibitors showcased their wares and services.  Products displayed included  health care and personal care products made with natural ingredients, organic food and other resources. A number of workshops taught attendees about green products and how to make greener choices.

Sheena Chin, Sustainable Initiatives Coordinator from DEPs Northeast District, participated in Jacksonville’s green expo and demonstrated a home-made cleaning product that contains non-toxic chemicals. She also handed out microfiber cloths which are better to use than paper towels because they are reusable and do not require the addition of toxic solvents. She also shared homemade green cleaning recipes and informed her audience on proper disposal of household hazardous waste.

Overall, the expo was successful in informing the community about the advantages of going green and demonstrating that everybody can be green.  Remember, it is as Easy As One to make Florida a greener place.
