Eco Experience

An environmentally focused array of new exhibits highlight the latest in easy, everyday reduce-reuse-recycle how-tos, healthy cooking, innovations in green technology and transportation. A sampling:

  • A 15-foot Paul Bunyan re-fashions his outfit to call attention to a giant-sized waste problem: Minnesotans throw away nearly 12 grocery carts of clothing and textiles every MINUTE.
  • A living greenwall more than 14-feet long created by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls highlights study findings that show foliage can positively impact college students’ well-being and academic performance.

Located in the Progress Center. Open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eco Experience is a partnership of the State Fair, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and more than 150 organizations and businesses across the state. www.ecoexperience.org
