We’ve been talking about it for a while: Universal is going green for the week of November 4-10, 2007. We’re talking week-long programming with a green theme mixed into NBC shows like My Name is Earl and The Office.
Now, we hear that Green is Universal will be holding two events in Hollywood for the general public as well. To kick off the week, local residents will be able to swing by Universal Studios Hollywood to drop of hazardous materials & electronic waste on Saturday, November 3 from 9am-3pm. Sound like something out of Halloween Horror Nights? Not to worry, the drop off area is in a parking lot. For details contact 1-888-Clean-LA or 1-800-98-Toxic.
Then, to close out the week, head back on over to Universal Studios on Saturday, November 10, 2007 from 10am to 4pm for a free Eco-Fair (does not include park admission). The fair will be outside the park by the front gates & globe. Here are more details:
The Eco-Fair is suitable for the entire family and will be presented by a “Green Team” of experts from over 20 organizations and the Environmental Media Association.
Activities and displays—many of them with “hands-on” interactive features– will range from simulated tidepools to Segway Personal Transporters, solar-powered blenders and eco-friendly popcorn poppers. Participating organizations will include Heal the Bay, Southern California Edison, Hollywood Beautification Team, Arbonne International, Global Green USA, LADWP, Baldwin Hills Conservancy, Tree People, Window On Our Waters, Los Angeles Conservations Corps. The Metro will test guests’ Green knowledge in the “Go Green, Go Metro” trivia game awarding exciting prizes and persons arriving via Metro can exchange their ticket stub for a free recycled carry-all bag, courtesy of the Coca Cola Company (offer good while supplies last).
