After looking at maps of blue and red  this week, how about immersing yourself in all things green? The Green Festival, billed as the nation’s largest green consumer living event, will be held at the DC Convention Center on November 8th and 9th.

Plan to spend some time  – there will be 150 visionary speakers, 350 local and national green businesses, and dozens of community and nonprofit groups. More info here.

Discounted admission for seniors, college students, bike riders or public transportation users, union members and Better World book drive participants.
