On the last Friday of every month Portland, Maine rolls out the eco carpet to host Green Streets Day. ‘What is that?’ you may be asking. Well it is a locally launched movement staged by the town’s residents to think planet.
I love to hear when stuff like this is taking place in my own region of the country, way to go Portland!
Residents and tourists alike are asked to wear something green while they think up Greener ways to live their lives. Local businesses who support and commit to a more eco-conscious way of doing things are staffed and ready to answer all manner of questions.
Whether it is the one day a month you take public transportation or the 365th in a row you placed scraps into your back yard composter, there is something about an entire community coming together for one likeminded purpose that makes me smile.
Upcoming dates include:
September 24, 2010
October 29, 2010
November 26, 2010
December 31, 2010
If you’re in the Portland, Maine area I highly encourage you to check it out!
Thanks goes out to my Aunt for forwarding on this story!
