ECCO Green Expo – Planet Earth Bag Donates Bags

ecco_green_expoPlanet Earth Bag was contacted by Kathleen Haerr, board member of ECCO, Elgin Climate Change Organization. They are a non-profit education based organization in the beautiful city of Elgin, Illinois.

In case you didn’t know, Elgin has been selected as one of the 11 “Cool Cities” in Illinois. What this means is that Elgin is taking steps to make our environment be sustainable for many generations to come.

Part of the efforts in educating the greater Elgin community is an event called ECCO Green Expo. This first annual event kicks off this Saturday, April 25th during what I like to now term Earth Week. The heck with Earth Day, I mean how can we focus on the Earth for just one day.

Among many other wonderful things happening that day Elgin city Mayor, Ed Schock, will be participating as part of a 4 mayor discussion panel they will be having on green city initiatives. So please if you are a local resident or not even a local, ride your bike, take the train or carpool over to the event. This is the first year and they’re already planning next year’s event!
