So I have been reading all over the internet lately about these different Green Festivals taking place in cities across America – one would have to travel from Boston to San Francisco to Chicago to…wherever…to go to them all. How is that green at all? Thousands of people flying all over the place to attend conferences on being green. Seems…strange and hypocritical. I have a better idea!
Let’s all get together and pick ONE city each year to host any and all green festivals. Want to be truly green and support the message of these festivals? Put them all in the same place over the same time frame – that way people can come to one or all over the course of a week, thus reducing the need for flying and reducing carbon emissions. That would really say “We are being Green” while we are attending all these conferences! Plus, each city would get to showcase their “eco-friendliness” each year to the entire world and all the conference goers.
What do you guys think? Doesn’t it seem kind of silly to hold these things year round in different places, when the entire message is “be green”?
