Description:

New to the show: a local company providing organic/pesticide free produce delivery service with its mission to simplify the purchase of local fresh organic produce in order to inspire good nutrition, and supporting local farmers. Organic produce will be for sale.

Getting ready for the holidays is what will be on everyone’s mind at this show. With the focus on home improvements, meet the experts face-to-face in solar, kitchen and bath design, flooring, windows, cabinetry, water systems and awnings. There will be show discounts as well as prizes from various exhibitors. All the latest in home remodeling and home decor will be on display. Enjoy walk-in tubs for those that have always wanted to get in and try it out.

Hundreds of sustainable products and services will focus on saving energy, the environment and your pocketbook. The Community Environmental Council (CEC) is partnering with Char-Go Productions to designate ‘green’ vendors who sell energy-efficient and environmentally-responsible products and materials. Attendees will learn about local recycling, alternative energy and ‘green’ living options they can incorporate into their remodeling projects. The Home Show’s ‘greener’ focus also includes a goal of zero waste. GreenProject Consultants will be on site to manage and responsibly dispose of waste at the Home Show. Waste will be sorted into recycling and compost bins, with very little (less than 20%) going into the landfill-bound trash containers. Char-Go Productions is doing its part to reduce the environmental footprint of this event.

Each attendee will receive a reusable eco-friendly tote bag. Parking is free.
