PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The 9th annual Greenfest Philly runs took place on Sunday at Headhouse Square — and folks who came out got to learn about, play with and eat eco-friendly products.
With live local music and more than 100 organizations in attendance, Greenfest Philly is the largest environmental festival in the region.
“They will all come together here today to showcase everything going on in Philadelphia that has to do with sustainability,” said Katie Edwards, festival director.
The stands, which ranged from organic food vendors to the latest in environmentally friendly vehicles, even taught kids about green sustainability.
“Recycle, don’t put trash in the ponds, don’t let balloons go,” said one young visitor, “because otters or sea turtles or something will get caught in it.”
And, believe it or not, one of the more popular booths was one where folks can learn about and taste different kinds of edible insects.
