Idaho Green Expo


Want your little pooping progeny to be a sustainable superhero? Head over to the Idaho Green Expo at the Boise Centre this weekend and pick up a BabyBoms starter kit. Made by Puffy Mondaes in Nampa, BabyBoms are mod cloth diapers that come in American Apparel-bright shades with a soft white fabric V across the front.

Or, if you're already potty-trained, make a beeline for the A1 Plumbing exhibit, where you can learn about the local plumbing company's water efficient dual-flush toilets, Energy Star-rated tankless water heaters and hybrid water heads, all of which help save on energy costs. More than 120 exhibits from other local green companies will also be around to distract you.

Produced by GreenWorks Idaho, in collaboration with the City of Boise and the U.S. Green Building Council, the Idaho Green Expo invites local eco-nuts to participate in a weekend full of public lectures, product demonstrations and interactive exhibits.

This year, the Idaho Green Expo has something extra special for moms--the first 500 mothers through the door on Sunday, May 9, receive a free Idaho Green Expo reusable stainless steel drink container.

Saturday, May 8, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, May 9, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; FREE; Boise Centre, 850 W. Front St., 208-336-8900,
