Ecofest This Saturday: It’s All Green

In just 4 years, Ecofest has become one of Westport’s most popular events.

There’s live music, food, exhibits, raffles, prizes, and plenty of interactive games and “stuff” for kids — all with a green theme. It’s a fun, exciting way to learn how to help save the planet, or at least live a healthier life yourself.

This year’s event is Saturday (June 9), 12 noon to 5 p.m. at the Levitt Pavilion.

It’s all organized and run by students from Staples High School’s Club Green.

Admission is free, thanks to support from Melissa & Doug, Terex, Wakeman Town Farm, Steaz iced tea, Skinny Pines brick oven caterer and J&J Kettle Korn.

So just how “green” is Ecofest? Well, if you bring your old light bulbs, printer cartridges and electronics, Club Green will recycle them for you.

Lookin’ good at last year’s Ecofest.

  1. does anyone know where i can recycle batteries on a regular basis in westport?

    • There are bins just inside the front entrance at Staples High School for recycling batteries and printer cartridges.

      • thanks dan. anywhere else in town? staples not that convenient for me.

  2. There is a battery bin at the town dump – right where the main trash deposit area is (i.e the hole in the ground).
