Go Green Expo all about sustainability

From the Register-Mail:

From supermarkets to colleges, the Illinois Department of Corrections and wind energy companies — The Green Solutions Expo 2009 at T. Fleming Fieldhouse at Knox College showed ways in which area companies, organizations and agencies are trying to do things in a more ‘environmentally friendly’ way.

Wednesday’s event was the third Green Solutions Expo. The first, in 2007, was at Monmouth College; last year’s Expo was at Western Illinois University. Linda Lee Blaine, director of Monmouth’s Prairie Tech Learning Center, was one of the people who came up with the idea for the event.

‘The whole point of it is to educate the public on environmental issues,’ Blaine said, ‘and also to celebrate the things being done in our area, such as wind energy.’
