CITY ATLAS: NEW HAVENOver the last decade, the Green Expo has given attendees new and exciting ways to make small changes in their lives, helping them toward an environmentally-conscious lifestyle. This year Connecticut Folk teamed with City Atlas: New Haven to celebrate “10 Years of Community Sustainability.” Attendees stopped by the City Atlas: New Haven vendor space (#70) between noon and 3:00 PM and shared what changes they have made, or planned to make, based on what they have learned from the Green Expo’s incredible exhibitors and vendors. Remember: What you do makes a difference in the health and well-being of the place you live and the people who live there!
