Green Festival DC 2013!

laelene Post in general blog,Tags: , , , ,

Last year was the first time Panda and I came across the Green Festivals and got involved volunteering there. You can check out what it was like and some of the goodies I scored! I also signed up to help out at the LA one, but then managed to total my car on the way so I didn’t end up going. This year we were back again and I signed up to help at the Green Festival store, which I had helped out with in the second half of my shift last time. I really enjoyed sharing the products at the store with passersby so I figured I’d do it again!

This year we were in Hall A, which seemed a bit smaller than last year’s.

I really liked the concept of these cleaning products and I loved the Minty Thyme scent they had for their kitchen and bathroom cleaner! I got a sample of that an the glass & surface cleaner, both of which I’m excited to try.

These rareEARTH artisan candles had a really cool look that was like gemstones. I didn’t get one but it’s on my list.

I was really enjoying my time helping out at the Green Festival store (except for the standing with backache part). The sales kept flowing in!

As we drove away I noticed the Washington Monument all lit up like a skyscraper.

As you can see from Panda’s pile, his priorities were quite different from mine.
