RHINELANDER - Many people visited Nicolet College in search of ways they could live a more sustainable lifestyle on Monday.
This year marked the 9th annual Sustainability Fair. More than 40 vendors took part this year.
Organizer Ann Eshelman says the event is mainly about showing people the various products and businesses that are available to help them live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
"There are a lot of people who are really trying to address sustainable concerns and who are trying to provide sustainable products, but they are small businesses, tiny little businesses that don't have an advertising budget," said Eshelman.
Plenty of younger kids come to the event as well.
"We want to do whatever we can to help in the education process and sensitization process for kids and so we've had a lot of activities today and the kids have really been into it," said Eshelman.
People could learn more about things like solar energy, wildlife conservation, and even sustainable funerals.
The event also featured presentations from various speakers and live music.
It is held on Earth Day every year.
