Sustainable America made a stop in Wilton, Connecticut, a few weeks ago to take part in the Wilton Go Green Festival. The festival is organized by a group of Wilton citizens with a mutual passion for conservation and sustainability as a way to educate their community about simple ways to save energy and money and use resources wisely.
We parked the Sustainable America Tesla Model S near our booth so festival goers could see and experience the electric car that Consumer Reports just gave a near-perfect score, which shows that driving and electric vehicle can be both good for the country by reducing oil usage, but also cool and exciting.
It was a fun, family event, so we decided to host a kids poster contest. We supplied the poster board and markers, and the kids brought their creativity. We asked them to draw their vision of a sustainable America. The winners were a brother and sister team—Emily, 15, and Ben, 12. Here are pictures of most of the entries and scenes from the day.
