The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago invite you to GO GREEN!
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, SITES officially launched Green Revolution at the Bob Jones Nature Center & Preserve in Southlake, Texas. Green Revolution is our new venture to license exhibition design files, which will allow multiple host venues to create their own "eco-zibit." Plus, no crates or trucks help to minimize OUR carbon footprint.
At the Bob Jones Nature Center, the action takes place both indoors and outside on their beautiful grounds and will be on view through World Environment Day on June 5. Centered around five of our most critical issues concerning the future health of our planet - Energy, Climate, Water, Food, and Waste, Green Revolution provides a hands-on community project that builds awareness of our fragile Earth and demonstrates everyday solutions to help protect our air, water, soil, and wildlife. Activities and lessons give practical tips on how we can all "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" in our everyday lives!
The exhibition design files for Green Revolution are available now for purchase by individual sections or as a complete set for just $5000, which allows you to customize the size of your display. So, in honor of Earth Day, SITES would like to share three easy ways to reduce, reuse and recycle:
- REDUCE energy consumption by using fluorescent light bulbs.
- Instead of buying bottled water, REUSE your favorite cup or mug.
- Book "Green Revolution" and RECYCLE old materials to build a family friendly exhibit that will inspire and excite visitors to join the green revolution!!!
And remember, going green SAVES green!
