My children and I were fortunate to attend the 12th Annual San Francisco Green Festival earlier this year and although I planned to write this review soon after, life with kids got ahead of me! At the event, I set a task for both my kids, to choose 5-10 things they would consider buying after the festival. With pen and paper in hand, my 8 year old son and 12 year old daughter were off on their mission. I really wanted to show my kids how a community comes together to support local and national green businesses and they were enthusiastic to learn about and try new products.
We brought 3 canned goods to trade in for free admission to the festival. My son really enjoyed getting a Henna Blessing Design and my daughter loved buying a dress from Lobos Del Mar which is a hand loomed home-crafted Organic fair-trade clothing company.
