People of all ages enjoyed some home improvement tips Saturday at Willamette High School. The fair had workshops on how to save energy during the cold winter months, and even how to get the most out of your tax refund. The focus was on living a greener lifestyle, but also cutting costs in the process. Organizers were looking to show residents that going green is a great way to save some extra cash.
“Everything from changing your light bulbs to starting your own compost pile, learning how to fix your own computer, little things like that that are simple and easy for people to do,” said Babe O’Sullivan, City of Eugene Sustainability Liaison.
The City of Eugene says the goal was to help learn some easy ways they can save money and reduce their energy costs.
