Green was definitely in in 2008, but Charleston City Paper and EverGreen Concepts hosted a huge event to show that living sustainably is much bigger than a trend. The Charleston Green Fair brought together restaurants, businesses, and residents looking to reduce their carbon footprints. On that sunny September day, over 5,000 people turned out to show their support for the cause and enjoy music, local food, and local drinks. And thanks to the help of Seven Star Events, the event was 94 percent waste-free. Look out for this year's Green Fair on Sept. 27, with several additional events added to the line-up!
