The Green Living Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., April 15 at the University Center located at the College of Lake County‚Äôs (CLC) Grayslake Campus to kick off Earth Week activities. Previously held in Libertyville, the fair was moved to accommodate greater attendance from more suburbs in Lake County. Close to 50 green organizations will be exhibiting, including environmental clubs from area high schools.

The CLC Sustainability Council and Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) are major sponsors, and Baxter Credit Union is providing reusable bags for attendees. Working Bikes, from Chicago, will collect bikes for repurposing and distribution to underserved communities. Participants may also bring shoes and glasses for recycling. Ten vendors will sell sustainable products.

Free admission. Location: 1200 University Center Dr., Grayslake. For more information, visit Tinyurl.com/GreenLivingFair.
