Whether you are already living a “green” lifestyle or want to learn more about ways you can be more eco-friendly, you’ll find a number of tips, tricks, and resources at The Green Fair of the Chathams this weekend! On Saturday, September 22nd, you’ll find plenty to do, see, and learn for greening up your Chatham NJ home from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Reasoner Park, on Fairmount Avenue, and Railroad Plaza North.
Themed, “What You Can Do to Live a Greener Lifestyle,” the fair is set up as as how-to event to help all residents who live in Chatham NJ gain information. If you feel your life is “too busy” to be green, this is definitely the place to go this weekend. Fair organizers suggest walking or biking to the event, unless you live far enough away to take the train.
Several interesting events can help you to clear the clutter in your Chatham NJ home, when you attend the fair. A community shredding/recycling project will be held and confidential documents can be micro-shredded anytime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Railroad Plaza North. Also, if you have a need to donate items from your home in Chatham NJ, you’ll find them put to good use at the Fair, as well. Residents can donate “gently used” furniture and building materials to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, at Railroad Plaza North, and used bicycles are welcome, too. Used books can also be swapped at the event or donated to the Chatham Library, giving you more opportunities to build your community in your green efforts.
Even children enjoy the green experience found in the hour-long show provided by Rizzo’s Reptiles, at 11:30 a.m. However this event is open to any age and enjoyment will be had by all as a local community band plays, food booths are attended, and free filtered water (if you bring a water bottle) and yoga classes are by Powerflow Yoga (in the morning 9:30 a.m.). Vendors and the nearby Farmers’ Market will have plenty to offer attendees, too. This “green” day is sure to be great and will have you feeling better about you and your efforts toward helping the environment and will continue rain or shine. Plan to attend!
