The city of Akron, along with Summit County and the Downtown Akron Partnership, are sponsoring the 7th Annual Green Fair, Friday, May 1, in Downtown Akron at Lock 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This event is geared toward anyone wanting to learn more about environmental friendly resources and products that could be used in the workplace. There are numerous vendors participating — from hybrid trucks and cars, cleaning and printing products, cell phone, batteries, office shredding and electronics recycling, to solar technology.
Vendors will display a variety of safe products available on the market and demonstrate how to use them.
The public is encouraged to bring old cell phones and cables for safe disposal and recycling.
