The Salem Chamber of Commerce is offering a free screening of the documentary "Deep Green" at Cinema Salem, One East India Square, to kick-off the fifth annual Living Green Fair. The screening will start at 10 a.m. and last about 50 minutes. All who attend the will be entered to win raffle prizes.
"Deep Green" is an upbeat documentary about how to de-carbonize energy and restore the natural world in order to stop man-made global warming. Many documentaries do a great job of showing the root of man-made global warming problems, but "Deep Green" was filmed to show some of the solutions to these problems. The documentary takes the audience on an epic quest through nine countries for the best ideas, technology and restorative solutions to fix the problems of global warming.
The Living Green and Renewable Energy Fair brings together green industry professionals and consumers from Salem and the North Shore to discuss products, services and information that encourage healthier, more sustainable consumption and lifestyles for businesses and families. Among other things, the free event will feature 40-plus exhibitor booths, the Salem Beautification Committee's Annual Plant Sale Fundraiser, and an electronic waste-recycling event.
The Fair is organized by the Salem Chamber of Commerce and the City of Salem Renewable Energy Task Force, and is sponsored by Salem State University, 92.5 FM The River, Independent Power Systems, and the GoGreen Web Directory.
