Under a bright autumn sky in Newton Centre on Sunday October 16, the Green Expo drew crowds of adults and children to booths offering eco-friendly products and services, information on how to live sustainably, free LED bulbs, a composting bin raffle, and of course–the magic energy bike. Here’s a snapshot of the day’s events:
