Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,
(Please click on red links below)
This is a very special month for Union Station in Washington D.C., for not only is it one of the nation’s premier, historic transportation hubs and a must-see destination for every visitor to the Washington D.C. area, but the fact that it is hosting Earth Month of 2013, from April 1 through April 30. This event is presented by Earth Day Network and the Premier Tourist and Landmark Association, featuring interactive, eco-friendly experiences throughout Union Station to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage sustainability.
Earth Month 2013 is a significant expansion of prior Earth Day festivities held on Washington’s National Mall.In addition to the scheduled events, exhibitors from across the country will be there to highlight various green initiatives, programs and events. “Our commitment to the environment must extend far beyond one day,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network. “That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with Union Station to devote an entire month to sustainability and green responsibility. Hosting the series of events over the entire month in one of the most iconic venues in our nation’s capital allows us to engage more exhibitors and educate more people.”
Earth Month will feature a film festival, a farmers’ market, alternative energy demonstrations, a green fashion show and a science fair with local schools, all held at Union Station throughout the month of April. There will also be programmed activities, entertainment, discussion panels, contests, games, giveaways, and much more throughout the month, with a full day of special events and entertainment on Earth Day, April 22 (Monday), this year. Most events are free and open to all ages.
There is a special reason I am posting about Earth Day/Month this year: one of our very own Central Florida entrepreneur couple/team (Carol/Kevin team) will be demonstrating their The Real Green Machine-solar products on April 22-24 at the Carriage Porch of Union Station. Carol and Kevin have these wonderful solar-assisted bikes that provide comfort, protection, and exercises, with models in 2-seater,
and police bike. (Think of the gas money one can save and pounds one can shed by using this vehicle to get around to pick up one’s kids from school or to get one’s grocery, not to mention the CO2 emission that may be reduced!)
They are such friendly and well-prepared couple that I wouldn’t be surprised if they have prepared some solar roasted coffee
for this event. If you will be at Union Station of Washington D.C. between April 22-24, look for Carol and Kevin’s The Real Green Machine and check out their solar-assisted bikes! Their contact information (407-574-6900; email: firstname.lastname@example.org ) are also available at www.therealgreenmachine.net If you’re a frequent guest on Facebook, check out Carol/Kevin’s The Real Green Machine page on Facebook. They will also be available for Solar Rides at the Union Station between April 20-22, 2013, so look for the “Buy a Solar Ride and Save a Forest” Carol/Kevin Team during Earth Day Celebration ! Have a terrific time on your Solar Rides!
~have a bright and sunny day~
