Stapleton Earth Day Festival: SUN Sustainability Comes to Life in a Great Event!

Stapleton Earth Day Festival: SUN Sustainability Comes to Life in a Great Event!

This Weekend The Stapleton United Neighbors(SUN) and it's Sustainability Committee hosted the First Annual Stapleton Earth Day Festival in Central Park. With over 40 vendors and food purveyors, there was something there for everyone. "Sciency" things like solar panels and greening your home. Family and health items such as diaper alternatives, and yoga. Conservation from Denver Water, Excel and Tenderly Used. And tons of fun like a composting exhibit, animals from the Urban Farm and KBCO rocking the tunes to entertain the estimated 400-500 attendees. Food offerings ranged from free organic fruit from Sprouts to spicy green Chili from Rocky Mountain Chili Bowl.

Of course The Stapleton Home Team was there giving out recycled frisbees that used to be 2 liter bottles and having the electric golf cart for the kids to play around on. We also touted Stapleton builders that offer Green built to Energy Star rated homes. Stapleton as "a philosophy" is very green. Live, work and play all without leaving the community, cuts down on driving. We also have a 94% participation rate in Denver Recycles program. All this while it's infrastructure skeleton is the world's largest recycle project made of reused concrete.

We talked to many people that didn't live in Stapleton and that were experiencing some of these great attributes for the first time. We showed the inventory of homes that we currently have with homes from Affordable Housing to loaded high end ranches. It was great being able to educate them and brag about our community as well. These Green details make a direct impact on our lives by Lower energy bills, saving on gas and enjoying all of the jogging and biking paths. At the same time doing the right thing for our environment and teaching our kids to do the same.

The future looks bright for this young event. I was very little watching my parents as Capitol Hill United Neighbors(CHUN) began the People's Fair as a local large blockparty and it grew to a major Denver outdoor event. Stapleton attitude towards the environment, the social aspect of the community and the surrounding neighborhoods and the great Central Park as a location this surely looks like an annual event that will be around for a long time.
