Sep 24, 2017 09:00PM

McHenry County College (MCC), in Crystal Lake, will host the 10th anniversary Green Living Expo from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., November 4, in the gym parking lot and hallways featuring more than 70 carefully selected area businesses, organizations and nonprofits that offer green products and services. 

        This year’s Expo includes tours of two fully decorated locally owned tiny homes; an award-winning travelling exhibit, Sustainable Choices, that focuses on our everyday choices; artists displaying and selling their sustainable creations in the Artists’ Walk; pumpkin and fall décor composting; and local college/university solar and super mileage team race cars and team members.

        The Living Lightly tent invites novices and expert tinkerers to share their favorite energy-saving invention or find. Solar energy organizations and installers will be on site to show how easy it is to have solar on your home or business. Energy efficiency tips, gardening ideas and great holiday shopping will also be available.

Admission is free. Location: 8900 U.S. Hwy. 14, Crystal Lake. For more information, call 815-479-7765 or visit McHenry.edu/greenexpo
