CRESTVIEW — An estimated 50 vendors will promote conservation and sustainability at the Environmental Conservation Fair, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday on Main Street.

Businesses will promote the use of solar energy, wind power, propane and compressed natural gas, or CNG, use.

Event organizers are the city of Crestview and CH2M Hill, which manages the city's wastewater treatment facility. 

"We want people to know that sustainability and conservation is not just about recycling,” CH2M Hill project manager Jayne Swift said.

Many vendors will show attendees — whether they’re homeowners, professionals or city officials — environmentally green, cost-effective technologies and practices like growing produce to raise livestock. There also will be food and family-friendly activities.

Bringing innovative projects

Swift approached Mossy Head resident Jason O'Daniels, a DeFuniak Springs code enforcement officer, to help organize Crestview’s event.
