“The expo is a great way for residents to learn about being green while having fun, and none of it would be possible without the support of our sponsors and vendors,” said Janet Liberman, co-chair of the Roswell Green Expo and Executive Director of Keep Roswell Beautiful. “The whole event is designed to actively engage community members while teaching simple ways to be sustainable and green. It is the perfect way for businesses and organizations to let the community know that they want to be part of a greener tomorrow!”
The Roswell Green Expo is generously supported by these sponsors: Conex Recycling, Advanced Disposal, Atlantic Coast Consulting, Goodwill Industries, Gas South, Atlanta Paint Disposal, General Electric, Neighbor Newspapers, and Abulous Media.
