MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The term “Going Green” can be a little intimidating.
But Saturday at the Union Depot in St. Paul, MN Goes Green organizers hope to make it easy with everything from repurposing items in your house, to fashion and food.
“I think most people want to do the right thing,” said Scott Mayer of MN Goes Green. “They want to recycle and make the earth a friendly place.”
And MN Goes Green can help.
“We have over 35 vendors who are going to be there offering some really simple do it yourself ways to be environmentally friendly,” Mayer said.
Co-ops such as Mississippi Market get fresh food, grown locally, no matter the season.
“We have more co-ops in Minnesota than anywhere else in the country,” said Liz McMann of Mississippi Market
People will also be able to bring old garments from their closet to have them turned into something new — a dress was even made out of a shower curtain.
And knick knacks from around the house turn into treasures, like cigar boxes becoming bird houses.
Owners of electric cars will also be outside the Union Depot, and can answer questions about how the cars work and how much they cost to run.
