Go Green! The 2012 Green Fair is coming to The Center April 21, 2012
Remember to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. How is the Center green? In conjunction with our 34th annual 2012 Railroad Run, we will once again features a Green Fair – free to the public. This year’s Green Fair will be Saturday, April 21, 2012. Vendors who support green/organic initiatives are being solicited. Click here to download a Green Fair vendor form. Our race is a Virginia Green event, certified by the Virginia Deparment of Environmental Quality. Clicking on the Virginia Green link will feature lots of photos from the 2011 Ashland Railroad Run.
How else is the Center Green? In addition to hosting the Green Fair, we use recycled products – copy paper, hand towels, and tissue. We recycle at our events, and we collect aluminum cans for Habitat for Humanity. If you have CFL (compact fluoresent light bulbs), we have a collection bin just inside the ramp door at the Center, and we are happy to recycle your bulbs – they must not go in the landfill. As a fundraiser, we recycle ink cartridges from your desktop prints (for cash).
