Live Earth Block Party!

The Green Toronto Festival wasn’t enough to get the city to go all environmentalist, so here’s another attempt. The Green Toronto Streetfest will take over Yonge-Dundas Square and Yonge Street from Dundas Street to Shuter Street on Saturday, July 7, noon–8 p.m. It coincides with the 7/7/07 Live Earth concerts around the world, which will be broadcasted at the Square in support of Friends of Live Earth. With this backdrop, check out clothing made from bamboo, solar power and low emission vehicles, biodegradable packaging, organic foods, and other environmentally friendly goods and services—just like the Green Toronto Festival! However, unlike the Festival, the Streetfest is on a weekend, so more people can actually make it out this time.
