“So many people know they should take care of the environment, but sometimes the task seems too large, so they don’t even start,” said Glenn Wilson, Dean of Ecotech Institute. “This event is designed to help people learn some of the simple steps they can take so when they get home they can start making an impact right away.”
In addition to green-living workshops, the Eco-Expo will demonstrate eco-friendly technology for home, business and personal use. Eco-friendly Denver-area food vendors will also provide food and drinks for purchase at the event.
Throughout the day, attendees can tour Ecotech Institute, a LEED-gold certified campus. Ecotech’s Aurora campus, which opened in January 2011, is expected to produce more than 50,000-kilowatt hours of electricity each year through its on-site wind and solar technologies. Currently about 250 students attend Ecotech, with the first class graduating in July 2012.
