Sustainability Fair Planned

This April 21st, SUNY Oswego will host a unique Sustainability Fair for the greater Oswego community. The Sustainability Fair will be a one-day exposition on green living for students, homeowners, and community members and will focus on environmentally friendly building products, energy systems, and green ideas. Over 20 vendors will display, discuss and in a few instances provide demonstrations of green products and services.

This is the first sustainability fair at SUNY Oswego, and in the greater Oswego Community. Local and regional vendors will offer products focused on green lifestyle, green home renovations and improvements, and services for community residents. Displays are slated to include energy efficient home products, alternative energy production, and green indoor products.

It will feature the most relevant service providers available to talk about wind, solar and related alternative technologies. The goal this year is to get sustainability and green products and ideas on people’s radar screens, and to create an event that will be a focal point for sustainability discussions among students, homeowners—and all community members.

The Sustainability Fair is sponsored by an ad hoc group of SUNY Oswego staff, faculty and students, and committed Oswego area residents. The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available. The event is sponsored by SUNY Oswego and underwritten with support from the American Chemical Society.
