Big Green Bus rolls into Caesars Windsor’s first family-friendly CodeGreen Expo on Aug 28Book A Room
Caesars Windsor is going green with their debut, family-friendly CodeGreen Expo on Wednesday, August 28 from 1 pm to 7 pm, located outdoors and across from the Colosseum at 250 Windsor Ave. The goal of the event is to bring together environmentally like-minded, local organizations with the shared goal of promoting sustainability, energy conservation and buying local.
Glen Sawhill, Senior Vice President of Caesars Windsor, said, “Our property takes great pride in our ongoing environmental efforts to create a greener tomorrow. We look forward to sharing the day with Windsorites and local Windsor-Essex organizations as we all work together to create an environmentally, sustainable region.”
Earlier this year, Caesars Windsor’s hotel proudly earned its 4-Green Key certification from the world recognized Green Key Eco-Rating program as one of the property’s many year-round environmental efforts. The highlight of the Expo is the arrival of the Big Green Bus, a repurposed Greyhound bus that runs on solar and biodiesel energy. On the bus are 13 Dartmouth College student advocates traveling across North America and stopping in 40 communities. Sponsored by Caesars Entertainment, the “classroom on wheels” allows the students to share their experience and host ‘green’ educational events across the country. Caesars Windsor is the only Canadian stop on their tour. For more information and for interview opportunities with the students, visit www.biggreenbus.org.
Guests of all ages are invited to this FREE event on August 28 to enjoy a variety of mini-workshops, giveaways and family-friendly activities. Visit these local Expoparticipants, and more, as they share their green tips, environmental information and more: ·
