The 2010 Huntington Beach Green Expo took place on September 18, at the Huntington Beach Pier Plaza in Huntington Beach, California. The annual Huntington Beach Green Expo provides an opportunity for the public to become more aware of the green choices available for the home, work, and at play.
Huntington Beach City Attorney Jennifer McGrath was pleased to attend this event in support of the Green Expo and its sponsors the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce and the City of Huntington Beach. Attendees were able to learn more about the benefits of going green using the latest technology and ideas in the areas of energy efficiency, recycling, waste reduction, water conversation, greenhouse gas reduction, and organic products.
The City of Huntington Beach has taken a lead in conservation and green solutions. The City has initiated a number of green programs encompassing a broad range of components including facilities-energy conservation, waste management & recycling, as well as water quality & conservation. One example is the installation of more energy efficient equipment and upgrades throughout the City’s facilities that will not only protect the environment but result in estimated annual cost savings of over $170,000.
Vendors at the Huntington Beach Green Expo were on hand with exhibits, information booths, product samples and demonstrations. Over 60 vendors were present ranging from the Bolsa Chica Conservancy to the Boeing Company. The Huntington Beach Green Expo also included musical entertainment provided by the Back Home Band, Nick Corsetti, Little Albert & The Bluestars, and the Mai Tais.
