HOBOKEN -- The city of Hoboken’s 2nd Annual Green Fair originally scheduled for Saturday, May 11, 2013 has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 19 due to the forecast for rain (Please note: previously the rain date was incorrectly stated as Saturday, May 18). Vendor registration is also extended until Friday, May 17.
The 2nd Annual Green Fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pier A Park along the Hoboken waterfront and will feature live music and organic food vendors. It is intended to introduce sustainable lifestyle choices to the community, raise awareness regarding environmental concerns, and demonstrate how consumers can reduce their impact on the earth by selecting sustainable, eco-friendly products and services, reducing energy consumption, conserving water and limiting their dependence on fossil fuels.
A compost bin will be on-site and residents are encouraged to bring any compostable materials (coffee grounds, grass clippings, peanut shells, etc.) they may be storing at home.
