RHINELANDER - You can celebrate solar power, organic food, and all things green for Earth Day in Rhinelander.
Nicolet College's Earth Day Sustainability Fair is on Saturday.
"Green" businesses and organizations will have booths set up all day long for visitors to stop by and learn.
Sustainability Northwoods hosts the fair every year. The goal is to educate the community on different environmentally conscious alternatives in the Northwoods.
"Many of these businesses are small businesses that are kind of out in the sticks and they don't get to meet with people very often. So it's a time to get together with like-minded people who are interested in environmental issues," said Ann Eshelman.
Sustainability in the home is the theme for this year's fair.
One of those vendors enjoys the chance to talk with his colleagues in the industry.
"I know I shouldn't leave my booth, but I do." said MMK Solar Marc Debrock. "It's all about information, meeting people and seeing what they are incorporating into their lives as far as sustainable products."
Steve Moe specializes in "green burials." He realizes his business is a little different, but that's why he goes to the fair.
"I really encourage people to come. Because that lets them understand again--understand their relationship with the world around them," Moe says. "The fair is a great place for that. And it's really neat and cool it's happening here in the Northwoods."
The fair starts at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, and it's free to the public.
