Brooklyn's annual Go Green! Festival is designed to show an appreciation for our environment through information and demonstrations. A variety of vendors with environmentally friendly merchandise were present like Holly's HeART by Hand, Taproot Organics, and AE Wooden Toys. Charlie & Sarah provided a clothing swap to exchange clothing without all the packaging of newly bought garb. Food vendors included Sugar Couture and Two Books Pizza among many others.
Farmers often treat fruits and vegetables with many kinds of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides that are not fit for human consumption. Organically grown crops, labeled as such by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), are required to be free from synthetic fertilizers and most synthetic pesticides. For this reason, many see them as a healthier choice compared to conventionally grown options.
