Guests can take rides on electric bicycles, discover how an engine-less SUV can zoom to astonishing speeds and see just how quickly cookies bake in a solar powered oven at the family-friendly “Eco-Fair” on Sunday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of Universal Studios Hollywood’s main gates. “The Entertainment Capital of L.A.” partners with dozens of exhibitors to offer a fun-filled panorama of engaging displays and creative ideas to help us “green” our lives.
EZ Green Bikes will offer test drives and explain why 70 million people in the world today choose electric bikes for transportation, while GM Motors’ engineers will educate the intrigued on how an SUV can use zero petroleum and be emission-free.
RockNSocks turns a special process that conserves land, water and energy into a fashion statement, and will show off their funky footwear made from regenerated cotton. Path to Freedom, an organization dedicated to helping people learn how to “think globally, act locally,” will also be on hand with eco-inventions that will make you think twice about the energy you use in your everyday life.
Another highlight of the Eco-Fair will be an autograph signing by “Dancing with the Stars” sensation Gilles Marini, “Days of our Lives” stars Peter Reckell and Jay Johnson, as well as teen celebrities Kyle Massey (“Cory in the House,” “That’s So Raven”) and Christopher Massey (“Zoey 101”). Parking will be free for any vehicle displaying the California Clean Air sticker; however, admission to the theme park is not included as part of the event.
The Eco-Fair is part of NBC-Universal’s “Green is Universal” program. Launched in May 2007, “Green is Universal” is NBC Universal’s ongoing green initiative dedicated to raising Green awareness, effecting positive change to the environment and substantially greening its own operations.
