 "Lots of smiling faces and good times,” says Even Norman, Sons of Bannock Band.

Says Evan Norman musician in the local band, Sons of Bannock that played at the Environmental fair, and fellow group members say they enjoyed playing at an event like this because as a band, they are all about the environment.

"Just all try to do our part to make the world kind of a better place or just chip in to do our part I guess,” says Jake Kratochvil, Sons of Bannock Band.

"I try to be mindful of my footprint, in everything I do, whether it be recycling or just being mindful, you know, drive less, things like that,” says Sons of Bannock Band member.

One of the great features about this event, is you can drop your bike off with the bike valet.

“Leave your equipment here, walk around, enjoy yourself and then come back and it's guaranteed to be there,” says Michael Howell, bike valet volunteer.

One bike that will be sure to be leaving the event is being raffled off for Portneuf Valley Bike to Work Month.

“Our intent is to get the community more involved in alternative transportation to work,” says Jeff Selfa, Bike to Work.

Models strutted the earthy runway with their refurbished fashions they made for the Recycled Fashion show.

One lady had on a recycled shirt that you would never guess was recycled.

"This garment is made out of half recycled water bottles and half organic cotton."

I like to look at the little triangle on everything, and think ok, I am going to recycle. I think it's important and I think it's more important to teach our kids the same thing,” says Marilyn Raymond.

"To encourage people to take better care of the earth,” says a young girl in the recycled fashion show.

"I think it definitely educates people, like us, we don't know enough about it so it definitely broadened our horizons on the environment fair and what we can do to make a difference,” says Heather Kynaston.
