The Bogota Green Team is hosting the 1st Annual Bogtoa Green Fair on Saturday 4- Oct. This will take place in the Bogota Recreation Center parking lot located at 162 W. Main St Bogota , NJ. Admission to this event is free and will run from 9:00a to 12:00 noon. This Green fair will correspond with the Bergen County Utilities Authority mobile shredding truck being in Bogota at that time. The BCUA shredding truck is a chance for resident to safely dispose of any personally , or sensitive paper document they may have. This is also a more environmentally friendly way of disposing of those documents. Paper is feed into a secure truck while being shredded then the truck transport the shredded paper to a processor which turns the paper into a fine dust, or powder which is then recycled into various paper products.
Anyone who brings documents to be shredded will be placed into a raffle to win a Dinner for two at the Bogota restaurant Luksa Italian Cuisine. Also scheduled to attend the Green Fair is Lewis Marx's pottery who will have items available for purchase, as well as demonstrations in the art of pottery. Bogota Blog NJ will have original matted photographs from the website for sale. A Soda Stream system will be raffled off, along with Bogota Beautiful showing Students how to make crafts by using recycled items. One vendor will display different types of green cleaning products and a bin from Planet Aide that will recycles donated clothes.
This is another event that will allow the Bogota Green Team to achieve certification from Sustainable Jersey. With certification the Bogota Green Team will then be allowed to apply for funding for more green project in Bogota and have more excess resources to help the Borough achieve a more sustainable standard of living.
