I happened upon a neat festival this past weekend. KC’s Uptown Greenfest was held on Saturday and Sunday, September 8th and 9th in the parking lot of Uptown Shoppes at 3600 Broadway. The festival hosted vendors from solar power to home energy audits to spiritual healers. I also met a nice young lady, Kate, who is the co-founder of a company, IAmTheEarth, that makes eco-friendly, philanthropic-focused products.
