The first beautiful weekend of the year has arrived in Chicago, but that hasn’t stopped the festivities from heating up at the 2007 Greenfest in Chicago, IL. More than 300 exhibitors and 150 speakers have descended upon the Windy City to create a green beacon for the tens of thousands expected to attend.
Ecorazzi was on the scene with various contributors and the sights apparently did not disappoint. Yesterday, field reporter Jason Crawford braved the masses and graciously snapped some photos of the action. We’ve got Chicago Mayor Richard Daley posing with Director of the Environment for the City of Chicago, Sadhu Johnson. Jason also spotted Sara Snow from Discovery Channel’s Living Fresh.
Making a surprise appearance was musician Jason Mraz. I’m a big fan of the “curbside prophet’s” lyrical madness and Crawford reports that he was just hanging out at a booth helping a friend sell some organic tees.
“Finally – oddly enough – Jason Mraz was there – not as a “celeb,” but he was running a booth for his friend who sells bamboo shirts. His name tag just said “Jason” on it, but we talked to him for a bit. You can check out the site, Blend Apparel, here. His friend and founder, was there, too (obviously). He designs all of the shirts and does the design for Jason’s merch/site.” Way to help out, Mraz!
