Wilton Go Green Organizes an Eco-friendly Festival

eco friendlyThe Wilton Go Green organization put together an eco-friendly event on the 5th of May, 2013. The organizers of this event organized several activities such as games and a 5K marathon. The primary purpose of this event was to encourage the eco-friendly behavior among the residents of Wilton, especially the young adults.

The details of the event

This eco-friendly festival had a 5K long marathon that was stretched out on narrow bridges, rugged trails, and on boardwalks. The organizers of the event planned the route of the marathon in such a manner that the participants would be able to experience the diversity of nature. The marathon was open to residents of all ages, from school children to senior citizens. But the organizers planned a separate set of activities for the children at the event.

In an attempt to keep the children involved in the event, the organizers planned a few specific activities for them, such as cycling, and a variety of outdoor sports. The children were allowed to hire bikes and other sports equipment at the event, but they had to register themselves with the organizers before getting these items.

Display of eco friendly promotional items at the event

This event was started with an inspiring speech from an official from the Wilton Tree committee, Bill Brennen. He feels that such events help in creating awareness among the residents, and he mentioned the importance of this event in his speech. Brennen also read out the schedule of the activities in the event, in his speech.

In addition to the marathon and the outdoor sports, this event gave all the eco-friendly business owners an opportunity to display their eco friendly promotional items as well. The event had close to 80 exhibitors that displayed their eco-friendly products to the participants. Many of the exhibits were based on eco-friendly activities that people could use in their day-to-day lives, such as recycling, energy conservation, eco-friendly transportation, and waste management. Furthermore, the event had a lot of exhibits for shopping enthusiasts, where in the residents could purchase green products.

Apart from the exhibits, residents who took part in eco-friendly initiatives of the city were also awarded at the event. Brennen stated that it was essential to acknowledge people who take out time to contribute towards the society, and events like these are an ideal opportunity to honor them for their efforts.
