7.7.07 - Green Toronto Streetfest Rocks Yonge Street


With street theatre shows, Live Earth concert broadcasts (powered by green electricity), and dozens and dozens of exhibits showcasing environmentally-friendly products, today's Green Toronto Streetfest was a total blast! The event was well-attended without being overcrowded, the mood was joyous, and Yonge Street closed to motor traffic felt so... right. The ingenuity and the sheer number of the displays completely knocked the socks of my inner enviro-geek! From rooftop wind turbines to electric scooters to worms (yes, worms, those long wiggly thingies) for compost bins, the Streetfest had them all! And if you ever wanted to check out the colour temperature of light produced by energy-efficient bulbs or see if you could fit inside those tiny eco-friendly cars, today was your chance. (The cars, by the way, feel surprisingly roomy! And no, I'm not short!)
