BRICK – Vendors and exhibitors interested in participating in the 6th Annual Township Green Fair are being encouraged to contact the township. Ideal participants promote or foster sustainability, conservation, social justice, stewardship, reduced consumption, or “green” and environmental services and products.
The event is sponsored by the Township Environmental Commission, Green Team, Recreation Department and Tourism Development Commission, is scheduled for Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 10am to 2pm in the East Gym at Brick Township High School.
“Last year’s 5th annual event was our most successful to date with the most vendors and exhibitors, and the most attendees,” said Mayor John G. Ducey. “We are building on that success by adding new elements.”
A focus of this year’s Green Fair is participation by young people and student groups from throughout the town. Environmentally focused groups from the school district, local scouting groups and others will be hosting booths with demonstrations and “green” giveaways.
Participants in previous years have included businesses, local crafters, non-profit and charitable organizations and government institutions all representing the theme of the fair (ecologically and socially responsible, locally-sourced, organic, fair-trade, etc.)
“This is an opportunity to network and interact with other like-minded people and to help educate and inform residents and attendees about products, opportunities and initiatives that are available to them locally” said Mayor Ducey.
Anyone interested in becoming a vendor or exhibitor or donating an appropriate item/service for raffle can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 732-262-1050 for more information.
