Today’s 2nd annual Eco-Fest flooded the Levitt Pavilion with 1,500 hungry folks.
Kids, Staples students, parents and grandparents — all were hungry for environmental information, free food, and good music.
They got it — and more.
I’m not sure which I enjoyed most: seeing so many committed young people earnestly manning booths; the pulled pork from Bobby Q’s, or the “Pump It Up, Baby!” video by Walter Kosner, Mikey Holmes and Helen Martin Block (shown at the library) that must be the funniest look ever at septic systems.
I know what I didn’t like: Taking an online test, and learning that if every human being on earth followed my daily habits, we’d need 2.9 planets to live on.
“That’s okay,” the student at the laptop said. “Mine came out to 6. But I’m trying to cut down.”
Thanks to Eco-Fest, we all have a little more knowledge about how to do it.
