Dubuque home to sustainability show


Organic Valley and the Dubuque Conservation Society hosted an event Saturday to spread awareness about "going green."  The Tri-State Living Green Farm and Home Show is the first of its kind in Dubuque. At the event, more than 25 local and sustainable exhibitors had information and items available about going green. Some exhibits included; sustainable energy options for farms, recycling, and bio-diesel production and processing.

Joe Klein is the Midwest/South regional pool manager for Organic Valley. He hopes the event works as a platform for others to learn more about going green.

"Everything that we should be doing as residents of the tri-state area, we should be doing what we can to help preserve the environment and help out in conservation." Said Klein.

The city of Dubuque has already adopted a sustainability model involving three areas. Those areas include environmental and ecological integrity, economic prosperity, and social and cultural vibrancy.
