Reminder: 2007 Abbott Kinney Festival This Weekend


TreeHuggers in Los Angeles, listen up: the 2007 Abbott Kinney Festival is happening on Sunday, September 30 in Venice (we mentioned it before). This year, the arts, design and living conference is going green with solar-powered music stages, biodegradable plastic bags and cutlery and a "Green Design Block Party" hosted by epOxybOx. If that weren't enough, there'll be some fun festival activities, including a raffle for a Raleigh Beach Cruiser bike, a membership to Flexcar with some free hours and more, and a great lineup of speakers (full schedule after the jump) including "Greening Schools," "Water Conservation Issues" and a presentation of An Inconvenient Truth.

If you're in or around Los Angeles, we hope you'll hop on a bike, get on the bus or at least carpool to this cool event. Sunday 10 am - 6 pm, Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice. ::2007 Abbott Kinney Festival
