Peabody Green Fest: April 28, 2011

On April 28th, residents of Peabody and surrounding communities will be able to have their environmental, recycling, gardening and energy-saving questions answered for free at Peabody’s celebration of Earth Day, GreenFest. From 9 am to 2 pm at the Peter Torigian Community Life Center in Peabody, GreenFest will highlight local and regional “green” businesses and organizations by displaying their products and services. Experts from renewable energy and energy conservation groups will also be available to discuss ways to save energy and money. GreenFest was created by GreenPeabody, Peabody’s energy and resource conservation committee, and is co-hosted with the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce.  It has been endorsed by Edward A. Bettencourt, Jr., along with all the members of the Peabody City Council, who recognize the growth of the green economy on the North Shore. An electronics recycling collection area will accept hardware such as TVs, computers, printers, monitors and more, providing members of the community the opportunity to bring their old items to be properly recycled, along with the benefit of removing any hazardous materials. An $8 cash-only fee will be charged for each. Very large items may be assessed an additional fee. Old cell phones will be collected separately by GreenPeabody and donated to Safe Haven Shelter, a resource for battered women. A “Shoe Bank” will be set up for visitors to donate used shoes and sneakers as part of a college student’s project. Visitors are being asked to participate in the Plant and Seed Exchange, where they can bring an item and take home a different item for their home garden. A special area will be set up for children’s activities, which will be coordinated by the Peabody Veterans High School Environmental Club, in conjunction with the Peabody Public Library. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
