The Green Market Exposition held all day today at the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport kicked off with a speech by Mayor Finch announcing numerous initiatives being undertaken by Bridgeport to green the city. Shortly thereafter guests began to pour into the exhibition area and didn’t let up until late afternoon.
My only regret about exhibiting at this extremely well organized and attended event, instead of just being a guest, was that I was unable to visit all the other exhibitors to learn about their businesses or listen intently to any of the panel discussions being held adjacent to the exhibition area. I was so busy with guests that I managed to have only two quick conversations! Talking with Michelle at Origins I discovered that they will accept ANY cosmetics container at their cosmetics counter for recycling. And Planet Zero Gravity has two new 17 ounce thermoses, one of which fits perfectly into a lunch box and the other into a bicycle water bottle holder. I personally love their large thermos and use it to store smoothies in the refrigerator for easy access by the kids.
News Channel 8 was there and posted an online article with some event footage and photos. No question this event will be a repeat next year. Kudos to the organizers. Thanks Daphne! See you at Green Drinks Fairfield and maybe even the newly minted Green Drinks Bridgeport.
