The 10th Annual Living Local Expo is coming up from 11am – 4pm on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the Rider University Gymnasium. At the Expo you and your family can meet your neighbors and catch up on everything green and local. Organized by a volunteer committee from the Mercer County Sustainability Coalition, the Living Local Expo brings a wide variety of resources each year to educate and inspire residents to live a healthy and sustainable life. More details are available at www.livinglocalexpo.net.
Our communities have worked together to bring you the vendors and nonprofits, the speakers and resources where you can learn about what you can do to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
We are an alliance of the green teams and sustainability organizations in Mercer County New Jersey and the Mercer County Office of Economic Development and Sustainability. Formed in 2013 to better coordinate the various green teams and sustainability organizations around Mercer County, the Coalition works to promote a regional and collaborative approach to sustainability initiatives. Environmental issues know no regional boundaries. From our air and water quality, to transportation, to trash and recycling, these issues are common to all of the municipalities within a region. It simply makes sense to promote sustainability regionally and to tackle issues together. By uniting together coalition members can become greater than the sum of their individual parts.
Our mission is to connect you and your family to the local vendors and resources that can help you to live more sustainably.
